TC Green Green-e Certified Renewable Energy Certificates

TC Green is a voluntary program, certified by Green-e Energy, that offers consumers an option to purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs) that meet minimum environmental and consumer protection standards. When you purchase RECs you are buying the renewable attributes (i.e. environmental benefits) of a specific amount and type of renewable energy generation. Your purchase of RECs helps to offset the amount of conventional electricity generation needed, helps to build a market for renewable electricity, and may contribute to other environmental benefits such as reduced regional air pollution and decreased global climate change.
