The General Services Administration purchases additional Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) for three of its agencies
Recently, the General Services Administration (GSA) recently purchased additional Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) for three of its agencies after a thoroug h assessment of year-end mandate requirements.

The additional RECs will strengthen the U.S. Department of Energy and Department of Agriculture’s standing in meeting Executive Order 13514. The RECs will also help the Department of Interior receive credit toward LEED certification.

The new RECs are part of the GSA’s larger sustainable energy management strategy, which includes a three-year electricity supply agreement with Constellation to provide 1.72 million megawatt hours of electricity supply per year to more than 146 federal and institutional sites. The agreement, which began in 2011, calls for Constellation to provide 5 percent renewable energy for all electricity supplied during the first year of the agreement and 7.5 percent for the second and third years. The new RECs are add-ons to the original agreement.
