Web Site Enables New Yorkers to Switch to Green Power

January 2010 - The Natural Resources Defense Council and the Alliance for Clean Energy New York announced Green Power NYC, a new website that allows New York City residents and small businesses to purchase renewable energy. From the site, consumers can select their desired type of clean power and energy provider and fill out a form to make the switch to renewable energy. The site was developed with funds donated from the Wolfensohn Family Foundation.

Currently, the site offers renewable energy options from two suppliers: Sterling Planet and Community Energy.

ConEdison Solutions is offering WIND Power, a 100% wind energy product, at a rate of 2.5¢/kWh, and GREEN Power, a blended product of wind (35%) and small hydro (65%) energy, at a rate of 1.0¢/kWh. The renewable energy for both products is supplied by Community Energy, Inc. from New York State facilities.

Sterling Planet is offering Sterling Wind, a 100% wind energy product sourced from regional/national facilities, at a rate of 1.85¢/kWh, and Sterling NY Choice, a blended product of wind (50%) and small hydro (50%) energy sourced from New York State facilities, at a rate of 2.5¢/kWh.
