renewable energy certificates (RECs)

go beyond conservation: invest in clean, renewable energy

 

We encourage each of our partners to optimize the energy efficiency of their business wherever possible through investments in new technology or improved energy use practices—after all the cleanest energy is the energy you don’t use.

Many BEF partners aim to go beyond energy conservation to directly support a clean energy future. Through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (also known as Renewable Energy Credits or RECs), your business can affordably purchase the environmental benefits of renewable power generated from facilities throughout the U.S.

Our Green-e Energy Certified RECs represent renewable energy sources from projects where clean zero-emission energy has been delivered to the North American power grid to replace fossil fuel-based electricity. One REC represents the non-power environmental attributes of 1,000-kilowatt-hours (1-Megawatt-hour) of renewable energy.

Environmental impact of RECsThe collective impact of our REC partners

Collectively, BEF and its partners have generated more than 6 million-Megawatt-hours of clean, renewable energy through our partners’ purchase of RECs. That’s the equivalent of powering over 559,000 homes with clean, renewable electricity instead of atmosphere-harming fossil fuels for one year.
