Pembina Institute Offers Green Tags

January 20, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] The Canada-based Pembina Institute is marketing wind-generated green certificates to consumers across the country as a chance to “offset the polluting effects of their own energy use.” The environmental organization has reached a three-year agreement with Calgary-based Vision Quest Windelectric to supply the certificates. Each certificate costs $27 (US$20.8 dollars) and represents the environmental attributes of 1 MWh of wind generation.
