Companies, governments, and citizens nationwide have made the decision to support green power by purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). In fact, these voluntary purchases of green power are projected to exceed 133 million MWh by the year 2020, or enough renewable electricity for over 11 million homes. However, despite their decade-plus use in corporate sustainability efforts, branding, and financing new projects, RECs still encounter basic background questions.
