What is a Renewable Energy Certificate (REC)?

ECO-Advantage is comprised of (RECs) and does not contain electricity. A REC is the environmental attribute associated with the generation of one megawatt hour of renewable energy that can be paired with electricity. Each REC embodies different characteristics that vary depending on the generation facility. Buying RECs helps build a market for renewable electricity. It also has other environmental benefits such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions. See below for additional information.

Your purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) supports renewable electricity production in the region of generation. For every unit of renewable electricity generated, an equivalent amount of RECs is produced, and by purchasing and pairing RECs with your electricity service you are using and receiving the benefits of that renewable electricity. You will continue to receive a separate electricity bill from your utility for electricity service [if applicable]. Your REC purchase also helps build a market for renewable electricity. Increased demand for and generation of renewable electricity helps reduce conventional electricity generation in the region where the renewable electricity generator is located. It also has other local and global environmental benefits which may include emitting little or no regional air pollution or carbon dioxide. The RECs in ECO-Advantage are verified and certified by
Green-e Energy, and AEP Energy is required to disclose the quantity, type and geographic source of each certificate. Please see the Product Content Label for this information. Green-e Energy also verifies that the renewable certificates are not sold more than once or claimed by more than one party.
