Build New Renewables
A Renewables Portfolio
The problem: Your renewable energy investments – commodity REC purchases – don’t deliver the value that you desire. While buying commodity RECs does signal demand to the renewable energy market, and enables the purchaser to claim the use of renewable electricity, they have limited ability to drive new generation.
We believe: Your commitment to renewable energy should result in new renewable energy projects – high quality projects that benefit communities across North America. By aggregating your demand for renewables with that of other companies, you can play a causal role in bringing new projects online.
Our goal: Create a 1 million MWh renewable energy portfolio that leverages the values of leading companies to build over 200,000 MWh of new, community-scale renewable energy by 2025 (and include new pollinator habitat when possible!).
Renewables Portfolio Standard
Renewables Portfolio Structure
Companies make at least a 3-year commitment to the Renewable Energy Portfolio. Native enters into 5-10 contracts with new projects.
New projects are built to meet demand. The volume of both new and existing projects increase to balance capacity and cost.
Portfolio investors are provided with opportunities to engage with projects and create messaging for their stakeholders.
Rights to RECs is transferred to investors upon payment. RECs are delivered on an annual basis in accordance with Green-e Energy and in compliance with LEED, EPA GPP, SBTi, etc.
Native manages project and portfolio performance.

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.
