Liberty Power – another source of “green” energy?

“I was in Petworth Yes Organic Market this evening and noticed an ad for a partnership between Yes! and Liberty Power as an alternative source of electricity, purportedly through clean power. I’ve gone to the offer website and couldn’t find details on how the electricity service works. Going to the Liberty Power website, one can find some info about “Liberty Green”, but this service appears to use electricity revenue to purchase renewable energy credits, rather than purchasing electricity directly from solar or wind energy providers.

When I bought my house in the winter i was interested in using Clean Currents for electricity, but they went bust in February before i could get signed up.

Has anyone used Liberty Power for electricity, and any thoughts on whether this offer actually represents a good source of renewable energy, or if this is just greenwashing?”
