Certified Renewable Energy Certificates
ENGIE provides RECs certified through the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) and its Green-e® Energy Certification Program
What are RECs exactly?
Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) represent the right to claim attributes and benefits of renewable energy resources. One REC is issued for each megawatt-hour unit of renewable electricity produced, but do not include electricity.
Customers can buy RECs up to their entire total electricity load in order to help the environment. These RECs help build a market for renewable energy projects by providing a production subsidy, thus lowering the costs associated with such facilities, and providing emissions-free energy. Green-e® Energy Certification is a national certification program for renewable energy products administered by the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS).
Green-e® Energy Certification is the nation's leading independent consumer protection program for the sale of renewable energy products and greenhouse gas reductions in the retail market. CRS certifies renewable energy products that meet environmental and consumer protection standards, developed in conjunction with leading environmental, energy, and policy organizations. The program requires that sellers of certified renewable energy disclose clear and useful information to potential customers, allowing consumers to make informed choices.
ENGIE GREEN is Green-e Energy certified, and meets the environmental and consumer protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. For more information about Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), see: www.green-e.org/rec.
