NewMix® RECs Help Support Your Environmental Goals
There are several renewable energy supply options that provide a path to achieve your company’s renewable energy goals, including the purchase, and investment in, new, local renewable energy, and leveraging national wind and/or solar sourced RECs.
Any purchase of NewMix® RECs is sourced from renewable generating facilities located within the continental United States. RECs can be purchased as a block, or as a percentage, of your electricity supply.
The purchase of NewMix® RECs demonstrates your commitment to environmental responsibility and supports your company’s goals. In addition you can point to –
- supporting the demand for new, clean, wind and/or solar power
- matching a designated percentage of your annual energy use1
- making environmental claims about a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions associated with your electricity use, also known as “Scope 2” emissions
RECs supplied by Constellation are Green-e® Energy Certified and sourced from wind and/or solar energy facilities located in the lower 48 states. Throughout the term of the contract, you can match any percentage of your electricity supply at your facilities are matched with RECs.
