What is a Renewable Energy Certificate (REC)?

A renewable energy certificate represents the environmental attributes of creating one megawatt-hour of electricity from renewable resources like wind and solar. When you enroll in Blue Sky, RECs are purchased to guarantee that renewable energy is added to the grid equal to all or a portion of your home’s electricity use (depending on your enrollment level). To learn more about RECs, watch this short video below or visit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s website.
