Meet Your Organization’s Environmental & Operational Objectives
Not every facility is able to change its operations to run on sources of green energy - but anyone can buy Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs).
How It Works
By purchasing RECs, you can provide direct financial support to renewable energy generators. RECs are recognized as an effective way to promote sustainable energy, without requiring the development of an on-site renewable installation, which may not be an option for every business or organization.
If you want to promote your sustainability efforts and make environmentally responsible energy choices, you can purchase a fixed amount of RECs or match a percentage of total electricity usage through our Green e-Energy ceritified NewMixSM Wind product. Purchasing RECs may also support businesses that are interested or involved in the EPA Green Power Partnership, EPA Climate Leaders® Program, or LEED Certification.
Our customers who have purchased RECs have benefited by:
- Purchasing RECs directly supports the operation of renewable power plants.
- Wind power generation produces zero emissions of greenhouse gases and no harmful pollutants.
- Utilizes renewable energy resources that are naturally replenished by wind.
- Buying RECs is an easy way for businesses to support renewable energy.
Attributes represented by a REC include the fuel source (such as wind, solar, hydro, and/or biomass), the actual emissions from the facility, the location and commercial operation date of the facility, and the date the MWh that produced the REC was generated. You can purchase RECs along with your normal power purchase or as a separate transaction.
In addition to providing you with extensive information regarding the renewable energy option, we offer support to our customers in promoting the sustainability effort.
