AMP Earns Two National “Top 10” Rankings for Alameda Green
ALAMEDA, CA – For the fourth consecutive year, Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) has been recognized as a national industry leader for its voluntary green power program, Alameda Green. Earlier this month, AMP earned two separate top 10 rankings from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the U.S. Department of Energy's primary national laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research. Alameda Green was ranked 2nd on the customer participation rate list and 7th on the rate of green power sales list as a result of significant growth in 2018.
Alameda Green gives residents and businesses the option to support renewable energy projects, like wind and solar projects. To date, the program’s participants include more than 4,000 residents and 70 businesses.
The first ranking highlights the high number of AMP customers participating in Alameda Green. With 13% of AMP’s customers participating in the program in 2018, AMP earned a 2nd place ranking on the list of national utilities with the highest green power program participation rate. This ranking shows a jump in participation from the previous year, when AMP ranked 7th in the category.
The second ranking showcases AMP’s megawatt-hour sales from Alameda Green in comparison with total utility megawatt-hour sales. AMP placed 7th with 4.7 percent of total utility megawatt-hour sales coming from Alameda Green in 2018. AMP moved up from the 9th ranking in 2017.
“We are honored to be recognized for the community support Alameda Green received in 2018,” AMP General Manager Nicolas Procos said. “These awards demonstrate our customers’ strong commitment to the environment.”
