           Definitions

        Renewable Energy Certificates, or RECs, represent the full contractual rights to the "green attributes" of renewable-energy generation. RECs:

        • Represent proof that one megawatt-hour of electricity was generated from an eligible renewable resource
        • Are transferable, renewable attributes
        • Are separate from the actual electricity produced
        • Can never be sold twice (or used for more than one REC claim)

         

           Carbon Offsets represent the reduction of a specific quantity of greenhouse gases. Green-e Climate Certified offsets are sourced from verified projects. When an offset is purchased, the purchaser alone has the right to all associated claims about the environmental benefits it represents. An offset:

        • Is to be regarded as a real environmental commodity, not a donation or investment in a future project
        • Stimulates market demand for emission-reduction projects, leading to more projects that can help mitigate the effect of climate change
