How it works. Energy Plus' Green Option supports the creation of 100 percent pure wind power - one of the cleanest forms of electricity available that is produced without greenhouse emissions. For about a penny more per kilowatt hour, your monthly electricity usage will be offset by an equivalent amount of wind power fed into the nation's power grid. This exchange is tracked by RECs - Renewable Energy Certificates. Learn more about the Green Option by visiting the FAQ page.
*Your purchase of renewable energy certificates (RECs) is supporting electricity production in the United States. For every unit of renewable electricity generated, an equivalent amount of RECs is produced. The purchase of RECs helps offset conventional electricity generation in the region where the renewable electricity generator is located. The purchase also helps build a market for renewable electricity and may have other local and global environmental benefits such as reducing global climate change and regional air pollution.
