All energy is not created equal

Our members use renewable energy certificates (RECs) from wind and solar farms that meet or exceed our environmental sustainability and impact criteria.

Sustainable Sunshine and Wind

Because it’s the most ecologically sustainable way to create renewable energy, we only source RECs that come from wind and solar farms.

Made in the USA

We source our RECs from wind and solar farms that were built in the last 15 years to generate energy for the US power grid.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered

Every REC that our members retire is less than a year old. Each transaction is also independently auditied and verified by Deloitte.

Bringing renewable power to the people.
