How Green is Your Utility? NREL Rates the Top Ten for Renewable Energy

How Green is Your Utility? NREL Rates the Top Ten for Renewable Energy

There are different standards to rank green energy programs, so NREL actually compiled several Top Ten lists, not just one. Austin Energy in Texas came out in front for selling the largest volume of renewable energy in terms of kilowatt hours per year. In terms of the percentage of customer participation, the City of Palo Alto Utilities in California won that category. Portland General Electric in Oregon was tops in the total number of customers signed up for its renewable energy program. As a percentage of a utility’s total retail electricity sales, Waterloo Utilities in Wisconsin did the best. As for the premium charged for green energy, Indiana’s Indianapolis Power & Light Company was the lowest at only 0.14 cents (that’s .14 cents, not 14 cents) per kwH.
