Some of the nation’s top tech firms, manufacturers and consumer companies are banding together to create a boom in renewable energy purchases throughout corporate America.
The corporate giants and their nonprofit partners on Thursday launched the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance, a trade organization that will help companies take advantage of new ways to purchase clean energy. The goal is to support construction of new green power projects by striking renewable energy deals pioneered by companies such as Google parent Alphabet, General Motors and Walmart in recent years.
“This is really about bringing as many players to the market as possible and giving everyone access to clean energy,” said Michael Terrell, head of energy market strategy at Google.
