Green Power Program
Welcome to the home page of the Green Schools Renewable Energy Purchasing Consortium!
The consortium was founded in 2013 by The Green Schools Alliance with support from EPA’s Green Power Partnership to help accelerate the adoption of renewable energy by K-12 schools. The consortium is comprised of K-12 schools from across the United States that are collectively purchasing renewable energy for their facilities, earning them national recognition from EPA’s Green Power Partnership (GPP) and paving the way for renewable energy use in the broader K-12 educational community. The goals of the consortium are to:
- Enable participating schools to purchase renewable energy in a simple and efficient manner
- Ensure that participating schools are receiving competitively priced Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) through demand aggregation and administrative efficiencies
- Provide participating schools with the resources and communications support they need to educate their stakeholders and community on renewable energy
- Demonstrate leadership within the K-12 educational community and establish a standard that will influence and guide the use of renewable energy in schools across the country
The Green Schools Renewable Energy Purchasing Consortium has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) in order to facilitate an annual purchase of RECs by participating schools. The consortium will be continued and expanded in 2014 and beyond.
