Renewable Energy Certificates

Meet your regulatory and voluntary sustainability targets with renewable energy certificates (RECs).

Invest in clean energy by purchasing RECs

We leverage our trading capabilities and work with renewable energy producers to provide RECs for businesses just like yours. Find out how you can take advantage in order to meet compliance-based and voluntary sustainability targets.

Purchasing RECs

RECs are issued when one megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity is generated and delivered to the electricity grid from a renewable energy source. You can purchase these RECs either as a stand-alone product or bundled with energy.


Sold, delivered, or purchased separately from electricity, these RECs are flexible and cost-effective. They are not tied to an underlying power purchase agreement (PPA) and can come from either a single renewable source or a mix of sources.


Sold, delivered, or purchased alongside electricity from the same renewable resource, these RECs are less flexible but give you the ability to claim the purchase of clean energy from a specific project.

Generating Green-e certified power

Help meet your sustainability targets with RECs verified by Green-e Energy, the global leader in clean energy and carbon credit certification.

We offer Green-e certified RECs that meet consumer-protection standards set by the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS).
