How RPD Helps Companies Share Their Green Initiatives with Customers and Employees

In 2015, RPD pioneered the sale of physical green electricity “by-the-slice” to corporate America from renewable generators. RPD offers fractional amounts of a renewable generator’s capacity (1 MW or more, for terms of 3 to eight years) to corporate buyers under simple, flexible transactions that meet their exact needs. More recently, RPD started offering physical green blocks to retail energy providers for sale to their own mass market customers.

Now, RPD is pleased to announce a first-of-its-kind corporate affinity program for green electricity. Under this unique program, devised and structured by RPD, Intuit, maker of QuickBooks and TurboTax will be able to share physical green power blocks purchased for their own corporate consumption with their employees and customers in Texas. Through RPD, Intuit has teamed up with retail energy provider, Just Energy to launch the plan. The renewable energy and renewable energy credits (RECs) will be sourced from EDP Renewables’ (EDPR) Lone Star II Wind Farm located near Abilene, TX.

RPD’s affinity program is easily tailored to fit corporate needs and can significantly enhance a company’s environmental reputation and commitment to sustainability. In addition, the program can save money for their employees and customers by aggregating their total green demand and thus creating green purchasing power.

To initiate our green affinity program, RPD facilitates the purchase a block of green energy for the corporate sponsor’s facilities from a specific, local renewable generator. Next, RPD helps the corporate sponsor enlist a retail energy provider to offer more of the renewable generator’s capacity to its employees and customers who are connected to the same regional power grid.

RPD’s affinity programs scale as more buyers participate and all parties purchase more energy. Every participant’s retail service contract is backed by physical green energy and the concurrent RECs from a specific generator, rather than the generic RECs that back most green programs.
