Partnership to Offer Certified Green Energy Across U.S.

Residential and commercial consumers in the 48 mainland states can purchase renewable energy electricity off the internet.

WEST KINGSTON, Rhode Island, US, 2001-06-05 [SolarAccess.com] Residential and commercial consumers in the 48 mainland states can purchase renewable energy electricity off the internet. Sterling Planet has partnered with EnergyOn.com to develop a market for sustainable energy in the U.S. Consumers can purchase ‘green tickets’ through Sterling Planet that will boost the use of electricity generated from solar, wind, small hydro, geothermal and biomass facilities. “energyOn is dedicated to keeping consumers aware of the options available to them regarding their energy and home services decisions,” explains executive vice president Kenneth Soule. “By partnering with Sterling Planet, we are providing all consumers with the opportunity to be part of the solution for a cleaner environment.” Consumers can determine the percentage of their existing utility service that they want to upgrade to green energy. Based on that percentage, the customer pays a premium to Sterling Planet to increase the national availability of renewable energy. The green tickets make existing green energy sources more financially viable and create incentives for the development of new generation. “When it comes to the environment, many residential and commercial electricity users want to do their part to sustain and improve the planet, but until recently did not have a quick, easy and convenient way to make a difference,” adds Therrell Murphy, president, CEO and founder of Sterling Planet. “Sterling Planet provides this previously missing link. Through our partnership with energyOn.com, Sterling Planet now has another forum for raising the public’s awareness of renewable energy sources and their significant environmental benefits.” Sterling Planet currently offers electricity in regulated and deregulated markets throughout the 48 mainland states and the District of Columbia. The company is based in Atlanta, Georgia, and offers the first certified, 100 percent green energy choice that is available from coast to coast. energyOn.com is an internet retailer that provides a comparison for residential and businesses consumers to price electric and natural gas products. Last year, it expanded its products to include home security, cellular phone service, satellite TV, and high-speed internet services.
