Renewable Energy Aggregation

Unparalleled renewable energy aggregation experience

At 3Degrees, we believe that there is a path to renewable energy adoption for every company, though those paths will not all look the same. Renewable energy aggregation, where multiple companies come together to pool their buying power to purchase renewable energy, is a valuable tool to facilitate that path for many organizations.  Energy aggregation is an especially compelling option for companies for whom traditional PPAs and VPPAs are not viable due to size or geographic constraints.
