Dublin, Ohio-based Accent Energy has purchased renewable energy certificates to offset its customers' current and future electricity consumption, and did not pass this added cost on to its customers, according to the utility.

In addition to its base electricity, Accent's CleanClimate offering also includes the option to purchase green power in the New York Con Edison market. Accent's two green power products are GoGreen, which is 100% New York-produced hydroelectric power, and GoGreen Premium, which is 100% produced wind power. The cost for both options is the same.

"With Accent's CleanClimate electricity offerings, every customer is promoting the support of renewable energy - regardless of which electricity product they choose," says Lance Schneier, chairman and CEO of Accent Energy.
