Renewable Energy Certificates, also known as RECs, represent the environmental and other non-power attributes of renewable electricity generation and are a component of all renewable electricity products. RECs are measured in single megawatt–hour increments and are created at the point of electric generation. Each REC represents a specific amount of electricity produced and delivered to the power grid by a renewable resource such as wind or solar. RECs have become an important tool for the renewable electricity market. This video address common questions and concerns about the role and benefits of RECs.
