Renewable Energy Certificates

$5.00 per MWh

In an ideal world, we would all have small wind farms in our backyards that generate exactly the amount of energy we need to power our homes. But let’s face it, that’s pretty tough to do. However, anyone can purchase renewable energy credits.  Calculate your personal carbon footprint with our online calculator.

How do RECs work?
By purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), you are supporting clean energy and displacing emissions associated with fossil fuel powered electric generation. For a one time purchase, we’ve done the calculation for you—the average US household consumes about 11,000 kilowatt hours (kWH), which is the same as 11 Megawatt hours (MWh) of electricity annually. Learn more about national energy use through the Energy Information Administration.

A renewable energy credit (REC)—also sometimes referred to as a renewable energy certificate or green tag—is created for each megawatt-hour (1 MWh, or 1000 kilowatt-hours) of renewable electricity generated and delivered to the power grid.

When renewable energy is generated by wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, and certain hydropower sources, two things are created: (i) the actual electricity and (ii) the environmental benefits associated with the fact that the electricity was produced without burning fossil fuels like coal or natural gas. RECs are the way those environmental benefits or “attributes” are tracked and accounted for.
