Take the Confusion Out of Buying Renewables

The following is a word from our founder about our new Renewable Integration Service Evaluation.

Dear Friends:

I am writing to tell you about an exciting new energy advisory service now available through RPD.

It’s called RISE, or Renewable Integration Service Evaluation, and it offers corporate electricity buyers a 90 day fixed- price no-obligation review of their options for buying physical renewable electricity.

We designed this product to provide companies with a timely, cost-effective way to cut through the confusion that often surrounds the decision to “go green” and get straight to the bottom line.

The Origin of RISE

During the last three years, RPD has gained a wide range of experience in serving the corporate market for renewable electricity. We have worked with data centers, warehouse businesses, hospitals, big box retailers, universities, and grocery chains all across the country. We know the options, from on-site installation to off-site power purchase agreements (real or virtual). From direct access products to green tariffs to fractional energy contracts to community solar and more.

We understand what is involved in buying wholesale versus retail, and the various regulatory rules that apply to different state and regional electricity grids.

In short, RPD has a deep first hand knowledge of the renewable electricity business as a commercial player, and not simply as a consultant or a policy advocate.  We think that gives RPD and its professional staff – which together have over 80 years of power sector experience – a leg up on many other energy advisers.

So as more and more companies begin to look for the best way to green their electricity spend, we thought this was a good time to begin sharing our knowledge with as many businesses as possible.

What is RISE?

Let me add one final note: RPD is offering RISE as an independent, no-obligation service. RISE is not affiliated or backed by any renewable developer or supplier and is technology neutral.

RISE is also customer-driven and can be used to evaluate any physical renewable energy options selected by a customer, whether or not they include any product offered by RPD.

In short, we want RISE to work for you. I hope you’ll take the time to see if RISE makes sense for your business by following this link.

Kind regards,

Greg Staple

Founder and Chairman, RPD
