Viridian Energy Affordable Green Energy From Renewable Resources
Wind Power: Demand for wind power generation will take off in the next five years, supported by continued tax credits and lower prices. Investment into wind power generation will soar as the focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions continues. Moreover, the government will mandate that certain downstream buyers buy renewable energy, further stimulating revenue. ~~ U.S. Industry Report May 17 2011
Making a difference doesn't have to break the budget. You can help the environment and save money at the same time.
A Higher Standard
In order to promote an increased usage of renewable energy and the development of renewable products, many states have adopted Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS). An RPS is a statewide benchmark for the percentage of electricity that must come from green, renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Continued development of renewable resources is largely driven by the adoption of these standards. As many states continue to work toward green energy solutions and higher renewable standards, Viridian Energy is proud to lead the way with our commitment to a minimum standard of 20% green energy in all our markets.

How does "green energy" work?
To help facilitate the sale of renewable electricity nationally, a system was established that separates renewable electricity generation into two parts: the electricity produced by a renewable generator and the renewable "attributes" of that generation. These renewable attributes are sold separately as renewable energy certificates (RECs). One REC is issued for each megawatt-hour (MWh) unit of renewable electricity produced. Buying RECs helps build a market for renewable electricity and contributes to environmental sustainability.
