After a year-long RFP process, the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC Water) has chosen Direct Energy Business as WSSC Water's renewable retail electric service provider
This agreement is managed by the Direct Energy Renewable Services group, which is a specialized team within Direct Energy Business created to focus on renewable and sustainable energy solutions for customers.
To accommodate WSSC Water's internal greenhouse gas emissions reduction plan (GHG emissions), Direct Energy Business has entered into a transaction to purchase energy and Renewable Energy Certificates associated with such energy from Sandy Ridge Wind, a 50MW wind generation facility located in Blair and Centre Counties, Pennsylvania and owned by Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp.'s Liberty Power unit ("Sandy Ridge"). That purchase will be integrated in with a previously won retail supply agreement and used to offset WSSC Water's energy usage through 2030.
Pursuant to the transaction, Liberty Power has made a commitment to generate up to 70,000 MWh/year of electricity and associated renewable attributes. This wind generated energy will allow WSSC Water to offset their electricity use by an additional 30% when paired with the commission's existing solar and wind efforts.
