Freedom Energy can assist you with procuring Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) in support of your renewable energy objectives and sustainability goals. There are different types of RECs and can be used to meet voluntary goals or compliance obligations such as the RPS.
What is a REC?
A REC is a tradeable, market-based, renewable energy credit that legally represents the renewable attributes equal to one megawatt-hour (MWh) of renewable electricity generation delivered to the grid from a renewable energy resource (i.e., solar, wind, biomass, hydro). Electricity is not considered renewable without a REC to substantiate its origin or point of generation.
RECs can be used to address indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with purchased electricity by verifying use of zero- or low-emissions renewable sources of electricity, and while not directly offsetting or reducing emissions, a REC can be used to match your usage.
