OneEnergy Renewables Joins REMA
June 21, 2012 - Today, the Renewable Energy Markets Association (REMA) announced its newest member, OneEnergy Renewables. With dual offices in Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA, OneEnergy Renewables specializes in the development of large-scale clean energy projects, and it currently has 17 solar projects under development in several states.
"We are honored to join REMA, which plays such an important role in protecting and enhancing the right of electric customers to choose renewable energy," said Bill Eddie, President of OneEnergy Renewables. "Energy markets are complex, and depend upon sound policy-making for environmental integrity, consumer protection, and promotion of competition," continued Eddie. "These are values we share with REMA."
Formed in 2008, REMA represents the collective interests of both for-profit and nonprofit organizations that sell or promote renewable energy products including renewable technology, renewable electricity, and renewable energy certificates (RECs), to individuals, companies and institutions throughout North America. REMA's recent policy outreach has included promoting voluntary renewable energy purchases in California's cap and trade program, coordinating key Senate offices as they lobbied the CFTC to save REC trading from burdensome regulatory requirements, providing guidance on federal greenhouse gas accounting, revising green power credits within the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED program, and marketing recommendations to the WindMade Label Program.
"Project developers like OneEnergy Renewables move the industry forward by connecting institutions that are serious about renewable energy to new project opportunities, with the end result being more green projects in the ground," said Josh Lieberman, REMA General Manager. "We welcome OneEnergy Renewables' support and the expertise they will bring to our promotion and advancement of green power products, services, and markets."
