Certified Renewable Energy Credits
ENGIE provides RECs certified through the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) and its Green-e® Program.
What are RECs, exactly?
Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) represent the right to claim attributes and benefits of renewable generation sources. One REC is issued for each megawatt-hour (MWh) unit of renewable electricity that can be paired with electricity.
The Green-e® Program is a national certification program for renewable energy administered by the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS). Green-e is the nation's leading independent consumer protection program for the sale of renewable energy and greenhouse gas reductions in the retail market.
CRS certifies RECS that meet environmental and consumer protection standards that it 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.
Only specifically designated renewable energy resources are eligible for the Green-e® designation. Customers can buy RECs up to their entire total electricity load.
Green-e® Energy is critical to the ability for consumers and businesses to enabling the awareness, planning and control of how they lower the environmental impact of their electricity use.
