Buying green power from your electric utility is one option if you're looking for ways to reduce your environmental impact.
Renewable Energy Credits (RECs)
Renewable energy credits (also known as renewable energy certificates, or RECs) represent the energy generated by renewable energy sources like wind and solar. Buying RECs is another way to support alternative energy.
Your carbon footprint is a representation of the total greenhouse gas emissions that were generated from your actions. When you buy carbon offsets, the money you spend is used to fund environmental projects that will reduce GHG emissions.
