The Benefits of RECs

A Renewable Energy Credit, also known as a renewable energy certificate or an REC, is a credit given to a source that generates renewable energy. As REC represents one megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity onto an electric grid. This environmental attribute is generated, and the seller may transfer or retire the REC to a buyer. Each REC has a registry, location, technology, and generation date associated with it.

Many businesses and corporations have made commitments to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from their electricity consumption. Many industries/companies are unable to install renewable electricity projects their corporate headquarters or at their industrial facility. Renewable Energy Credits may be purchased or retired by companies and individual and assist in fulfilling corporate clean energy and carbon neutrality goals.
AQC works with REC credits from all project types throughout the world, and pride ourselves on assisting our clients in navigating this fragmented marketplace.
