Sign the Buyers' Principles

The Corporate Renewable Energy Buyers’ Principles tell utilities and other suppliers what industry-leading, multinational companies are looking for when buying renewable energy from the grid. A group of large energy buyers developed these six principles to spur progress on renewable energy and to add their perspective to the future of the U.S. energy and electricity system.
