Renewable Energy Credits
RECs enable you to power your office with green energy—like buying clean electricity from your utility, but better, as you can choose which projects to support. All Native RECs are third-party certified by Green-e Energy.
We have helped hundreds of businesses green their electricity with RECs from renewable projects across the country. To learn more about purchasing Native RECs, contact us at 800-924-6826 or [email protected].
We can help you meet sustainability requirements, including:

- Cradle to Cradle Certification
When electricity is generated from a renewable energy source, it is separated into two components:
1. The electricity produced
2. The environmental benefits of that electricity generation
The environmental benefits include the greenhouse gases avoided by generating electricity from renewable sources rather than conventional fuels. These environmental attributes are calculated and sold separately as RECs.
RECs are measured in megawatt hours of electricity. One REC is created by each megawatt hour added to the North American grid from renewable energy sources like wind, solar, and biogas.
Purchasing RECs supports projects that reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the production of grid power. It is the most common and cost effective way for you to be 100% renewably powered.
Through our strong market relationships and expertise, we have helped leading companies achieve their green energy goals. Learn how your purchase of RECs can help build new renewable energy projects.
Native's RECs are Green-e Energy certified, and meet the environmental and consumer-protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. Learn more at www.green-e.org.
