Renewable Power Direct, founded in 2014, offers access to competitively priced supply contracts for green power. We source the energy directly from renewable generators and arrange for physical dispatch into the grid. Our innovative approach enables customers to actually buy renewable energy, rather than merely buying RECs to offset or “green up” grid-based power purchases.
RPD is authorized by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to offer wholesale electricity services at market-based rates in deregulated states such as Texas, the mid-Atlantic states, and California.
RPD’s business is based on an innovative new electricity supply chain. It bypasses the traditional utility model. And it moves beyond today’s default clean energy option, Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). RPD’s wholesale purchase model and independent supply chain directly links green power users and producers.
That gives customers a clear contract path to the green power they purchase. It also ensures that the majority of a customer’s electricity spend goes to renewable generators rather than REC marketers and existing grid-based power suppliers, which typically include coal-fired generators.
