Green Power Marketing

The more general concept of green power marketing refers to selling green power in the competitive marketplace, in which multiple suppliers and service offerings exist. Electricity markets are now fully or partially open to competition in more than a dozen states. To date, competitive marketers have offered green power to retail or wholesale customers in District of Columbia, California, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and several New England states. Competitive markets grew to 14.5 million MWh in 2013, a 25% increase from 2012, due in part to increased data availability.

Retail Products by State
