Clean Energy Select

Clean Energy Made Simple

At Alabama Power, we know that choosing clean sources of energy is important. But we also know that powering your home or business with clean energy isn’t always easy. That’s why we made accessing clean energy simple with Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from Clean Energy Select. With RECs, you can certify that the energy powering your home or business is sourced from renewables. It’s clean. It’s simple. It’s Clean Energy Select.

When you make the choice to use more clean energy, you are contributing to a better tomorrow and a cleaner future.

How do RECs work?

RECs allow you to easily and affordably cover your home’s electric usage with clean energy. When you buy RECs, you are certifying that your power is coming from 100% renewable resources. Each REC represents 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy produced by our renewable solar and wind farms. With RECs, you can proudly declare that your home is powered by renewables.

Where does the energy come from?

The energy source depends on the type of RECs purchased. The energy that accompanies our solar RECs come from Alabama solar farms, including Fort Rucker and Anniston Army Depot. Wind RECs come from our Buffalo Dunes wind facility in Kansas and Chisholm View wind farm in Oklahoma.
