As part of its commitment to green power, the Center for a New American Dream, RPN's parent organization, has been recognized by the Clean Energy Rewards Program of Montgomery County, Maryland. The Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) purchased by New Dream are from regional wind power and cover 100% of organizational electricity needs.

By participating in the Clean Energy Rewards Program, New Dream is reducing its impact on the local and global environment as well as contributing to regional economic development. In addition, through this program, New Dream received a 1.5 cent rebate from Montgomery County for every kilo-watt hour (kWh) of REC purchased.

The RECs purchased by New Dream are from Clean Currents, a clean energy broker/aggregator operating in Maryland, Washington DC, Chicago, Texas, and other areas with competitive electricity markets.
