Abest Power & Gas And Sterling Planet Partner In Wind Power Offer

Corporate Resource Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:CRRS), a diversified technology, staffing, recruiting, and consulting services firm, today announced that Abest Power & Gas, its joint venture in retail energy supply, and Sterling Planet, the nation’s leading retail provider of renewable energy and other carbon-reduction assets, have entered into an agreement for Abest to offer wind power options to its customers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey.

Sterling Planet will supply customers of Abest with Green-e Energy certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) from wind power projects. Customers can match 50% or 100% of their use of conventionally produced electricity with RECs to mitigate the environmental impacts of conventionally produced electricity with zero-emissions wind energy. The average residential customer can expect to pay an additional 50 cents daily for wind energy at the 100% level.

“We’re excited about providing our residential and business customers the ability to choose to reduce the environmental impact of their everyday lives,” said Abest Power & Gas CEO Frank Rosa. “We all use electricity, so we all have an impact. Now electricity users in the markets we serve can erase that impact by simply making a choice.”

Enrolled customers will be avoiding the emissions of carbon dioxide and its equivalent greenhouse gases that would otherwise result from electricity use. For the average U.S. residence using 1,000 kilowatt-hours monthly, the annual avoidance is 18,600 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions. The environmental benefit compares to taking two cars off U.S. roads for a year or not burning nearly 1,000 gallons of gasoline, according to data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Beyond these environmental benefits, enrollment also helps grow the green power market, creating new revenue to keep existing renewable projects operational and fund new projects. Greater use of U.S.-made renewable energy translates to less reliance on imported sources of electricity, greater energy security and an economic stimulus through green job creation and additional tax revenue. Businesses enrolling for Abest wind power can rightfully claim a 100% greenup of their electricity use to meet their environmental goals, strengthen their brand and demonstrate stewardship to customers. Businesses using large amounts of electricity can request a quote for wind power greenup.
