THE EASIEST WAY TO GO GREEN


Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), also called Renewable Energy Credits, Green Tags, or Tradable Renewable Certificates (TRCs) represent all of the environmental, social and other positive attributes of power produced from renewable energy. 3 Phases Renewables purchases and sells Green-e certified RECs. Our REC program follows strict auditable procedures so that you can be assured that your REC purchase will legitimately further your environmental initiatives and programs and that the RECs will not be double-counted.

HOW IT WORKS

When renewable energy is generated, two monetized components are created - the first component is the electricity and the second component is the RECs (for every 1 MWh [1000 kWh] of electricity generated, a REC is produced).

The RECs can then be unbundled and sold separately from the electricity. When the RECs are later purchased and combined with the purchaser’s conventional power, the combination is equivalent to buying power directly from a renewable generator.
