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, you become an active partner in renewable energy production and development. RECs provide a vital revenue stream for renewable energy generators and incentivize future renewable energy development. In addition, for each REC purchased on your behalf you are claiming the environmental attributes of the renewable energy produced, including reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and the release of other harmful pollutants.
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.
With SolarSave from NYC Clean Energy™, you can go install solar panels on your roof and start saving money while reducing your carbon footprint. We will learn your needs, preferences, and specific circumstances. We will then reach out to one or more of our solar installer partners on your behalf to receive proposals that match your needs. Our solar experts will then analyze the proposals with a trained eye and present you with the best option. We do all of this at no cost to you!
