No fake news: accurately promoting your renewable energy purchase

When renewable energy is generated, two products are created — the actual energy that goes onto the electric grid and the environmental attributes of the energy. These products are separate and distinct and can be purchased either together or separately. In the United States, the environmental attributes of the energy are embodied in a renewable energy certificate (REC), a legal instrument that gives the owner the right to claim the environmental attributes associated with the renewable energy, including the right to claim renewable energy use. One megawatt hour of renewable energy generation creates one REC and all RECs are uniquely numbered and tracked so as to avoid double counting or multiple claims on an individual REC. RECs are created and tracked for all grid-connected renewable energy projects, and they are almost always monetized and claimed by someone.
