How Renewable Energy Certificates are use to make energy plans green
Your monthly electricity bill is likely made up of many different components. One of the components is renewable energy certificates, or RECs. As more utilities seek to provide their customers with clean energy, they turn to RECs. By purchasing RECs, customers can bolster the supply of renewable energy and help their utility meet its emission goals by offsetting emissions from other sources.
