Green Money: Bowdoin Trades RECs to Continue Decarbonizing Campus

Look in-depth about our work with the university in our case study.


The NEPOOL 12-month electricity strip was up by 3.1% week-over-week to $60.96/MWh, and the calendar year strips recorded mixed movements. The 2025 and 2026 strips were up, while the 2027 calendar year strip slid last week. NYMEX and gas prices in the Northeast are causing upward pressure in the market.


The natural gas prompt month rose by 35¢ or 13.5% week-over-week to land at $2.92/MMBtu. U.S. dry natural gas production dropped week-over-week, while national consumption increased, driven by the industrial and power sectors. A narrowing supply surplus put upward pressure on markets. 


WTI and Brent prices experienced moderate increases this week. WTI was up 2.11% to $76.84/barrel week-over-week, and Brent was up 2.19% week-over-week to $81.59/barrel. The New York Harbor Heating Oil price registered a 0.77% increase over the last week to $2.48/gallon.
