Webinar: U.S. Utilities Expand Access to Renewable Energy Through Green Tariffs
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM ESTOnline
A closer look at how traditional utilities in the United States are responding to consumer demand by offering large-scale renewable energy purchasing programs called “green tariffs”.
WRI’s updated issue brief, Emerging Green Tariffs in US Regulated Electricity Markets, shows that as of September 2016, traditional utilities in the United States have created 10 green tariff options, twice the number that existed at the end of 2015. Utilities offering these large-scale renewable energy purchasing programs include some of the country's largest shareholder-owned utilities, like Xcel Energy and Rocky Mountain Power.
Delve into the details of these tariffs with WRI expert, Letha Tawney and invited experts from the utilities. Where could this trend be useful to your renewable energy goals?
