Green power resources produce electricity with an environmental profile that is superior to that of conventional power technologies and produce no net increase in greenhouse gas emissions. Green-e certified renewable energy and carbon offsets meet very stringent environmental standards.
From a short-term perspective, one simple and effective approach to quickly ramp-up is to purchase a Green-electricity and/or natural gas contract. This type of transaction allows you to procure RECs to offset up to 100% of your electricity and/or gas consumption but rather than buying additional RECs separate from your commodity agreement, the additional REC cost is added directly to the supply rate and charged on your utility invoice.
Benefits of Green-e include:
- It is a certified solution, and you can assert the electricity consumed is offset with renewable energy being put back on the grid. Similarly, natural gas suppliers can procure additional certified RECs to offset natural gas emissions associated with your load.
- Green-e certified renewable energy and carbon offsets meet stringent environmental standards and help you achieve your sustainability requirements.
Freedom Energy has the resources and expertise to assist with local REC sourcing as a method of offsetting emissions and procuring credits from preferred generators. We have helped many clients to source RECs from local sources to meet their specific requirements, particularly allowing clients to tout a renewable portfolio offset coming from within their own state.
