Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs)

Renewable Energy Certificates or RECs are also known as Renewable Energy Credits, and can be used to match your energy consumption from conventional sources with energy produced from renewable sources like solar or wind (more info).  Our REC subscription tiers are based on the national average monthly electricity usage.

For every month you are enrolled in this product, NRG will retire Renewable Energy Credits to cover the emissions from your household electricity usage based on the plan that you select.

What is a REC?

Purchasing a REC does not mean that you have clean or renewable power delivered directly over the utility wires to your home.  This is not possible.

Instead, RECs represent the environmental and other non-power attributes of renewable electricity generation and are measured in 1 mega-watt-hour (MWh) increments of power generated from renewable sources like wind, solar, hydro, and biomass. They can be traded in online markets separately from the actual electricity produced by renewable facilities. We purchase our RECs from renewable energy projects in the United States, which supports the development of domestic renewable energy. Learn more
