Thousands of businesses and institutions across the nation are purchasing RECs as a way to demonstrate their concrete interest in clean, renewable energy. Now TVA is offering you a chance to purchase RECs through its Green Power Switch program.
RECs—or renewable energy certificates—represent one megawatt-hour of renewable energy generated and added and delivered to the power grid. When you purchase a REC, you are buying the legal right to the renewable energy generated from the energy generator.
Now TVA is offering Green Power Switch Southeastern RECs, a new pilot program that allows businesses and institutions inside the Valley to buy in. When you buy Southeastern RECs, you are able to make renewable energy claims, which allow you to show your customers and stakeholders that you are a supporter of regional green initiatives. The RECs purchased through the program are delivered to the Valley along with the renewable energy, and the cost of the RECs is added to your regular electricity bill.
When you buy Green Power Switch Southeastern RECs, you receive multiple benefits. You’ll:
Green Power Switch Southeastern RECs give your organization the ability to make renewable energy claims, and allow you to demonstrate to your customers and stakeholders that you are a supporter of regional green initiatives. Depending on the size of your commitment, you may be eligible for our robust recognition program—designed to ensure that others are aware of your commitment.
Green Power Switch Southeastern RECs is a Green-e Energy certified product, and meets the environmental and consumer-protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. Learn more at www.green-e.org.
