COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Guide to Purchasing Green Power
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides a brief overview of voluntary purchases of electricity generated from renewable resources such as solar, wind, geothermal, some forms of hydropower, and biomass.

Today, the diverse array of energy resources used to create electricity can produce very different environmental impacts. In the United States, power generation is still the nation’s single largest source of industrial air pollution and is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.

Green power purchases play an important role in driving the development of new renewable energy projects. By purchasing green power, organizations are helping protect the environment, meeting their own financial goals, enhancing stakeholder relations and contributing to the development of domestic energy resources.

This 3 PDH online interactive presentation is applicable to businesses and other organizations that want to diversify their electricity supply and reduce the environmental impact of their electricity use. These include federal, state and local governments; universities; businesses; nonprofit organizations; and individual consumers.
