LACONIA — Somewhat lost in the shuffle of businesses and governments trying to reduce energy costs, a government-initiated program that allows electricity customers to buy renewable energy and save money is gaining traction locally with the help of a company dedicated to green power.

The Green Power Partnership, a free, voluntary program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, assists organizations in procuring electricity generated from renewable resources and promoting their green power leadership. Through the purchase of Green-E certified Renewable Energy Credits, customers can purchase 100 percent renewable energy.

Glacial Energy has helped many customers participate in this program by purchasing and retiring RECs on the customer behalf through its Glacial Green Product offering.

Founded in 2005, Glacial Energy is one of the fastest growing retail energy marketers, selling electricity and natural gas in deregulated markets throughout the United States, where it serves residential, commercial, industrial and institutional customers in more than 20 states and 50 utility markets. Its expertise, quality of service and wide range of products make it one of the most competitive, flexible and cost-effective providers in the industry. Glacial Energy serves 4,500 commercial customers in New Hampshire, while also purchasing RECs for the towns of Troy and Meredith.
