RPD Energy arranged the supply of wind energy and concurrent Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) for five LG Electronics USA facilities in Texas, Illinois and New Jersey. The LG facilities are served under the Purely Green affinity program partnership launched this year by RPD Energy, Intuit, Hudson Energy (the commercial division of Just Energy) and EDP Renewables.
“LG’s actions demonstrate how the Purely Green program can help companies meet their sustainability goals in a cost-effective way,” said Eric Alam, CEO of RPD Energy, formerly Renewable Power Direct. “LG has demonstrated that a customer need not have a large load at every site to benefit from utility-scale renewable energy.”
Alam added: “The Purely Green program pioneered by Intuit, and supplied by EDPR and Just Energy, creates a breakthrough that enables more companies to buy directly-sourced green energy on favorable terms.”
The Purely Green program has expanded to include Intuit partners and sustainability peers, and LG is the latest company to take us its supply arrangement. For LG’s part, these 2018 wind-power projects support the company’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its U.S. operations by 50% by 2020.
“Helping LG advance their sustainability goals also supports our mission to expand the reach of renewable energy,” said Brent Moore, President of the commercial division of Just Energy. “Flexibility is essential to grow access to renewable energy, and Hudson Energy welcomes the opportunity to break new ground with LG in greening its facilities.”
