Proof that your company uses 100% renewable energy
Hydro-Québec’s electricity mix is among the most renewable in the world (>99%), yet some organizations are required to prove they consume 100% renewable energy. How can they do this? With renewable energy certificates (RECs). By purchasing RECs, you become the sole owner of the environmental attributes associated with your use of 100% renewable electricity.
Good news! Hydro‑Québec has launched a pilot project providing a simple way to meet your needs. Learn more about RECs!
What’s a renewable energy certificate?
A renewable energy certificate (REC) is equal to 1 MWh of electricity generated from a 100% renewable source.
How does it work?
Although, more than 99% of Hydro-Québec’s electricity is generated from renewable sources,
you can’t say for sure where your electricity comes from ...
unless your company purchases RECs!
When you purchase a REC for the amount of electricity your building uses in a year, you become the owner of the environmental attributes associated with the energy the building consumes.
