You read that right, you can now ‘go green’ for as little as $25!
In honor of becoming 100% powered by green energy, the Co-op is now selling Windstreet Energy greenhome cards through renewable energy certificates.
A REC, renewable energy certificates, represents units of power such as kilowatt hours. RECs do not replace utility power, but they do offset the pollution that would otherwise be produced in the generation of your conventional electricity. By purchasing RECs to cover your energy consumption, you are allowing clean energy to enter the market at a competitive price. You are purchasing all legal rights to the benefits clean energy creates – namely the pollution avoided (carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, mercury, and particulate matter) and the economic benefit to rural communities that are often the home to these technologies. You have the right to declare that your power is green power.
