We are proud to share some exciting news about RPD’s growing commercial success.

2016 was transformative for RPD: our innovative medium-term contracts for slices of physical renewable energy plus RECs won significant new backing from major corporate buyers.

At year’s end, RPD’s total sales of green electricity topped 200,000 MWh with energy committed to customers from a diverse mix of renewable facilities in the mid-Atlantic states (PJM), Texas (ERCOT) and California (CAISO). The total value of the energy and RECs covered by RPD’s contracts is now over $7 million.

In 2016 we also opened a new sales office in Houston and recruited a top-flight management team with decades of energy industry experience: Eric Alam, our CEO; Mark Mancino, our VP of Sales, and Mike Adcock, our VP of Supply. This new management team has already put RPD on the map.

RPD has now established itself as the leading national provider of fractional green energy capacity to commercial and industrial customers from large renewable power installations. In 2017, we plan to accelerate our growth because we know that the great majority of corporate buyers do not need (and cannot afford) to contract for the output of an entire utility-scale wind or solar facility.

So please help us get the word out about RPD’s alternative green energy contracts. Follow us and link to us through our social media outlets on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter; we will continue to share news and market information as the year unfolds.

Happy New Year!

During the last year, we’ve met with many prospective customers and attended several conferences and workshops for buyers and sellers of renewable energy. One thing we’ve heard time and again is this: The great majority of potential customers, including even fairly large companies, cannot afford and generally do not need the output of a whole off-site wind or solar farm.

So what are the options for these buyers?  RPD’s new discussion paper looks at several ways to address the “less than total wind farm” dilemma. It also profiles RPD’s own approach which is based on dividing the capacity of recently built (but under-utilized) wind and solar facilities into multiple blocks of power based on the buyer’s load and desired contract term. RPD then works with customers to negotiate follow-on agreements for additional renewable power projects.

This two-step approach has multiple benefits for buyers, not the least of which is that a buyer can quickly switch from grid power to green power and reap the associated economic and environmental benefits. This can be done without waiting for a new facility to come online or having to contract for the full output of a project.

Please get in touch if you think RPD’s approach to buying green power may work for your company. We would also welcome your comments and suggestions on the new discussion paper.
