Sustainability Solutions for Businesses

Finding ways to use, generate and support renewable energy has become a major focus for businesses. We offer a couple of options to help you meet your company’s sustainability goals now and well into the future.

Purchase Renewable Energy

The electric grid is a mix of energy coming in from all sources including renewable ones. There’s no way to tell where your energy is generated. However, you can claim some or all of it is coming from renewable resources through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECS). 

RECs allow you to easily cover your business’s electric usage with green energy. Each REC represents 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) or 1.0 megawatt-hour (1.0 MWh) of energy produced by renewable resources, like solar and wind power. With RECs, you can rightfully claim ownership of green energy coming into the power grid, and proudly declare that your business is powered by renewables. 

Since we know every business has different energy needs, we can customize a REC plan specific to your business. Simply click the button below to get started. Note: If you're looking to purchase more than 100 RECs for your business, please contact your account manager. If you don't have one, please contact our Business Call Center

Sponsor New Renewable Energy Projects

Larger commercial and industrial businesses can also create an impact by sponsoring large-scale renewable projects that will generate more green energy to flow into the power grid. Companies are not only sponsoring projects, but they are also buying the RECs generated from those projects to match the power consumed by their plants or business. 

Other benefits:

  • You can claim “additionality”, which means you’re responsible for supporting the new expansion or development of renewable resources instead of buying what is already available or planned.
  • There are no operational and maintenance costs for sponsoring a project versus if you were to install solar panels.
  • It’s a long-term commitment, typically 15 years with a known upfront cost, which could help meet your company’s future goals and allow you bragging rights for helping start and finish a renewable project that wouldn’t have happened without your business’s support.

If you’re interested in learning more about supporting new renewable energy projects, contact your business’s account manager. If you don’t have one, please contact our Business Call Center.
