Silicon Valley Power (SVP) has been recognized as an industry leader in marketing its green pricing program, Santa Clara Green Power. This recognition is being given by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
Each year, NREL uses information provided by utilities across the nation to rank the top 10 performing green power programs in a variety of categories. According to Lori Bird, senior NREL energy analyst, more than 850 utilities across the U.S. now offer voluntary green pricing programs.
‘Despite the economic downturn, utility green power sales continued to expand nationally last year,’ says Bird.
With 8.4% of its customers participating in Santa Clara Green Power, SVP ranks fifth nationally for customer participation rate. This is the ninth year these rankings have been compiled by NREL.
