When it comes to saving our planet, every little bit helps. Selecting a Simple Renewable Energy plan from Direct Energy is an easy way to contribute to renewable sources. For each year of the contract, we'll retire a fixed amount of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) on your behalf. This amount is equal to 100 percent of the average annual residential customer electricity usage in Alberta. The purchase of RECs helps to offset the emissions used to power your home.
Sign up with Direct Energy today to protect the environment and to protect yourself from fluctuating energy costs. Choose from our Simple Renewable Plan (Single Fuel Electricity), or bundle electricity and natural gas with our 3-Year Simple Renewable Dual Fuel Plan. No matter which plan you choose, you'll avoid future rate increases for the next 3 years.
Renewable electricity is electricity that comes from resources that occur naturally and that can be replenished or renewed in a human lifespan, such as; moving water, wind, sunlight, etc.
A REC, Renewable Energy Certificate, is the environmental attribute of 1000 kWh of electricity injected onto the grid. When renewable electricity generators inject renewable electricity into the grid, they have the rights to sell their certificates.
The Renewable electricity generators can use the money raised through the sale of the RECs to support their facilities or they can invest in new generation facilities.
Currently we have a 3-year dual fuel and a 3-year single fuel contract with Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs).
Currently we only offer one product where we will retire a REC quantity of 7,200 kWh. Which is equivalent to the average residential usage each year.
