Your trusted source for Renewable Energy Certificates ("RECs").

This is a Renewable Energy Certificate “REC” product. For every unit of renewable electricity generated, an equivalent amount of RECs is produced. The purchase of RECs supports renewable electricity generation, which helps reduce conventional electricity generation in the region where the renewable generator is located. You will continue to receive a separate electricity bill from your utility (if applicable).
