Renewable Energy Certificates

Renewable Energy Certificates

A Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) is the official standard to certify the renewable origin of electricity in North America (USA and Canada). It is unbundled from the physical electricity and it’s currently the only way to claim usage of renewable energy except for on-site production.  

One Renewable Attribute Certificate equals one MWh of renewable electricity and includes information about other ESG factors of renewable electricity generation.
