What Are Renewable Energy Credits?
Every Renewable Energy Credit represents one megawatt-hour of renewable energy added to the grid. Sources of renewable energy can include solar, wind, hydroelectric, or even nuclear and natural gas generation facilities. RECs aren’t really a unit of energy, but rather a certificate of the attributes related to the energy source.
Some of the information recorded on Renewable Energy Credits are:
? The renewable facility’s location and build date.
? A unique identification number and certificate type.
? Eligibility for certification under the applicable RPS.
Additional data may include the emissions rating of the renewable facility, generation type, project name, and total capacity.
How Do Renewable Energy Credits Work?
Businesses and individuals around the world are expected to spend $2.9 billion on renewable energy by 2025. That is a far cry from 150 years ago when 90% of the country's energy needs were satisfied purely by wood sources.Sustainable power is a topic that continues to receive much attention as the plight of our planet comes into focus.

Conserving energy is important to not only save homeowners money on energy expenses but also to protect the future of the environment. One way to conserve energy is to utilize renewable energy sources. This article is going to discuss the importance of renewable energy and what it means for our future.First off, what is renewable energy? Renewable energy sources are those that are replenished constantly. Renewable energy is reliable and plentiful compared to non-renewable energy. Sources such as coal, natural gas, and oil are only obtained by costly explorations and possibly dangerous drilling. Furthermore, these sources will continue to become more expensive as supply decreases. However, renewable energy will become less expensive once the technology needed to access it improves.…
