When you purchase your electricity supply from NYC Clean Energy™ we, in turn, purchase an amount of Renewable Energy Credits (“RECS”) issued by renewable energy generators (wind, hydro, solar) to match your electricity usage.
By purchasing these Renewable Energy Credits, NYC Clean Energy ensures that enough clean energy is produced to equal our customers’ energy consumption and carbon footprint (this is the amount of carbon that is released into the atmosphere as a result your consumption of fossil fuel sourced energy). With the purchasing of RECS, your hard earned money guarantees that the amount of energy you use is produced by renewable sources.
Our 100% National Wind product is produced from wind farms across the nation, helping support domestic production of renewable energy, while our 100% New York Wind product is produced from wind farms located in New York State. Your purchase of a locally sourced product helps support local wind power projects and contributes to our local economy.
Wind farms and other clean energy generators sell their production supply to the market, so when you buy clean, you not only help the environment, you also increase renewable energy demand and help grow this emerging business sector.
