The 50 Founding Members of VREC include companies, nonprofits, school districts, and municipal agencies across the United States.

“Voluntary purchases of renewable energy have been a significant driver for the growth of the U.S. renewable energy market,” said Jay Carlis, President of the Renewable Energy Markets Association (REMA). “We formed VREC to ensure that policymakers hear from the many companies and nonprofits supportive of the voluntary market for renewable energy.”

There is no fee to join VREC and any company or nonprofit is eligible to become a supporter. Members of VREC agree to three basic principles:

1. Voluntary purchases play an important role in increasing the amount of renewable energy nationwide.
2. Reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs) is an important driver of customer decisions to purchase renewable energy products.
3. Policymakers at all levels should protect and preserve the voluntary renewable energy market and associated GHG reductions under legislation or regulations.

“Citizens, organizations, companies, local governments and states need a continuing incentive to do more,” said Dan Galpern, Attorney at the Western Environmental Law Center. “Protecting the voluntary market will allow consumers to take additional action secure in the knowledge that such action will lead to actual environmental benefits. We are glad to be a Founding Supporter of this vital new coalition.”

Members of VREC will receive opportunities to take action on behalf of the voluntary market and periodic updates on Coalition efforts and activities.

“Over the past decade, voluntary markets for renewable energy have been the primary means for consumers, businesses and government agencies to act on the preference for clean power,” said Arthur O’Donnell, Executive Director of the Center for Resource Solutions. “While it already has a considerable list of supporters, we look forward to VREC developing into a strong voice for these important voluntary markets.”
