A REC, Renewable Energy Certificate, represents the environmental attribute of 1,000 kWh of electricity injected onto the grid from a renewable resource. When renewable electricity generators such as hydro, solar and wind inject renewable electricity into the grid, they have the rights to sell their certificates.
Once you select your Green Option (25%, 50% or 100% green), Direct Energy will purchase and retire a percentage, based on your selection, of 7,200 kWh of RECs per year. 7,200 kWh represents the average annual residential customer electricity usage in Alberta. The monthly green fee will contribute to the purchase of the RECs.
RECs represent the environmental benefit of electricity generated from renewable resources. By choosing Green, represented by the RECs, customers are able to signal a demand to the market for renewable generation leading to increased investment. RECs provide an incentive for investors to fund future renewable generation helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Renewable electricity generators can use the money raised through the sale of RECs to support their facilities and invest in new green generation facilities.
The Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) are purchased from a variety of sources across Canada.
