Creative products and stellar service sets 3Degrees apart
3Degrees was again named the 2016 Best Trading Company in the Renewable Energy Certificates (REC) – North America category by Environmental Finance magazine. This is the second year in a row the company earned the top position and is based on a survey of customers and peers.
The award reflects the value 3Degrees products and services bring to partners throughout the voluntary and compliance marketplaces. “These markets are complex and ever-shifting,” explained Scott Eidson, Vice President of Environmental Markets. “In response, 3Degrees has developed flexible products that use renewable energy certificates as well as other solutions to help clean energy suppliers and buyers mitigate risk and meet carbon reduction goals.”
3Degrees products and services span the globe including North America’s most complex markets such as the WECC, PJM, New England and Illinois but it is the extensive industry knowledge and focus on high-touch customer service that keeps hundreds of energy suppliers and buyers returning to Scott’s team each year. “Our focus on relationships and ease of transacting gives our partners a simple way to support the type of clean energy that is most beneficial to their business and geographic location.”
Since 2015 3Degrees has transacted more than 90 million megawatt-hours of renewable energy from over 500 facilities – with nearly 50% of those facilities coming online in the last six years. Overall, this is the fifth time 3Degrees has earned a top designation by Environmental Finance readers in this category.
