EverPower Wind Holdings, Inc Joins the Renewable Energy Markets Association

Wind power developer issues support for industry association dedicated to growing North American markets for renewable energy

WASHINGTON, May 7, 2013 – The Renewable Energy Markets Association (REMA), the sole industry association dedicated to protecting and advancing the voluntary and compliance green power markets, today announced the addition of EverPower Wind Holdings, Inc. to its diverse membership. EverPower Wind Holdings, Inc. develops, owns, and operates large scale wind energy facilities across the Midwestern and Northeastern U.S. EverPower Wind Holdings, Inc. currently operates six wind farms with a nameplate capacity of 512 megawatts (MW), with an additional five facilities in development.


"As a major player in the wind energy industry, EverPower Wind Holdings, Inc. understands the impact of consumer communication and state and federal policy on renewable energy development, for better or worse," said Mr. Michael Speerschneider, EverPower Wind Holdings, Inc.'s Senior Director of Government Affairs and Permitting. "Our decision to support REMA underscores the industry's need to speak with a more unified voice to customers and legislators on the positive role of renewable energy markets in putting more green power on the grid."

Formed in 2008, REMA represents the collective interests of both for-profit and nonprofit organizations that sell or promote renewable energy products including renewable technology, renewable electricity, and renewable energy certificates (RECs), to individuals, companies and institutions throughout North America. REMA's recent policy outreach has included maintaining the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's annual green power report, coordinating key Senate offices as they lobbied the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to save REC trading from burdensome regulatory requirements, and revising green power credits within the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED program. Most recently, REMA has advocated on behalf of residential and commercial solar generators in Arizona preserve ability to claim or sell their on-site renewable generation. It also tracks state legislation to modify Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS).

"Wind turbines and wind farms are some of the foremost images in Americans' mind when we discuss renewable energy and job creation," said Josh Lieberman, REMA General Manager. "EverPower Wind Holdings, Inc.'s perspective and experience will bolster REMA's efforts to clean, renewable energy technologies nationwide."
