GreenMountain.com, the leading US green electricity retailer, is building a green energy "portal" on the Internet that offers access to green news and information and to a selection of green products. The new information source is sure to help raise the profile of wind and other renewables as portals offer streamlined access to content on the Internet from one site. Recently the energy retailer, which offers products that contain much wind power, announced it had a deal to become the primary consumer electricity merchant of Yahoo!, one of the best-known portals and search engines worldwide (Windpower Monthly, May 1999). GreenMountain.com, currently selling green electricity in California and Pennsylvania, is aggressively pursuing the Internet's "e-commerce," which is expected to become the most common form of trading in America within just a few years. GreenMountain.com has also announced Internet deals with The Green Travel Network, SocialFunds.com, First USA and Autobytel.com.
