How Do Companies Like Energy Shift “Use” Green Power?

All renewable-based electricity generators that are tied into a power grid-tied produce two products: physical electricity and RECs or renewable energy certificates. The electricity is fed onto the electricity grid; the RECs are a method for claiming and accounting for the benefits of renewable-based electricity generation. As organizations purchase RECs, they are contributing to the development and expansion of green energy. As renewable power generators produce electricity, they have a positive impact, reducing the need for fossil fuel-based generation sources to meet consumer demand. RECs embody these positive environmental impacts and convey these benefits to the REC owner.
