Over time, it has become clear that natural gas, coal, oil, and other fossil fuels are a limited commodity. Not only are they destined to run out eventually, but they also damage our atmosphere and contribute to global warming. Only about 3% of Ohio’s energy sources used in 2018 were renewable. There are still many communities that depend solely on non-renewable resources for energy. Did you know electrical aggregation offers renewable energy?
All forms of electric generation have at least some impact on the environment. By pursuing energy efficiency, renewable sources, and conservation, the environmental impacts associated with energy generation can be reduced. Ohio law contains a renewable energy portfolio standard that requires that 8.5% of electricity sold by Ohio’s electric distribution utilities or electric services companies must be generated from renewable energy sources by 2026 and each year thereafter.
As solar and wind energy become more viable and less expensive, communities are looking to get ahead of the curve. Trebel has developed relationships with multiple suppliers that can offer 100% renewable energy (or a percentage of renewable energy) to offset the carbon footprint of the community. This can be accomplished by using renewable sources for the aggregation rate, or alternately, by offering a separate opt-in program with renewable options. Trebel has the renewable energy expertise to help meet your community’s renewable energy needs.
