Why Alabama?

Renewable Credits

For more than a century, Alabama’s bountiful rivers have provided cost-effective, renewable hydro energy for our customers. But we are also pursuing a diverse range of renewable energy sources. Alabama Power is a leader among Southeast utilities in purchasing energy from out-of-state wind farms. The company also works with our state’s military bases and with major companies such as Walmart to help them meet their renewable energy goals.

Alabama Power offers a Renewable Energy Certificate program that provides a cost-effective way for residential and business customers to promote the expansion of renewable energy.

Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) 

Alabama Power’s Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) program allows customers to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates associated with energy generated from renewable sources such as wind and solar.

Purchasing RECs is a way for individuals and businesses to support renewable energy development. Customers can participate in the REC program for as little as $1.25 a month.

To learn more and to sign up for the Renewable Energy Certificate program, call Alabama Power Customer Service at 1-800-990-2726.

More information about RECs is available from the EPA’s website:
