Accent has purchased renewable energy certificates to offset its customers’ current and future electricity consumption and did not pass this added cost on to the customer. In addition to its base electricity, Accent’s CleanClimate offering also includes the option to purchase green power in the New York Con Edison market.

GoGreen is Accent’s 100% New York-produced hydroelectric power product offering; and GoGreen Premium, is the utility’s 100% wind power product. The cost for both options is the same, enabling New Yorkers to choose which is more important to them, New York-produced or 100% wind.

Lance Schneier, chairman and CEO of Accent Energy, said: As one of New York’s largest energy service companies, we wanted to make a strong statement about our support for New York and Mayor Bloomberg’s PlaNYC. Our CleanClimate electricity enables New Yorkers to do their part to help New York lessen its carbon footprint without the additional cost associated with purchasing green power.
