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.
