Go for the Green-e

Sunwave Gas + Power is happy to be included in your renewable energy interest. That’s why we’re offering qualifying residential and business consumers Sunwave Wind, Green-e® Energy certified REC products.

Since 1997, The Center for Resource Solutions, a credible non-profit source in clean energy certification, has offered the Green-e® Energy certification. The Green-e® certification program is a voluntary certification program for renewable energy that meets the highest standards in North America.

Criteria for Green-e® Certification

  • Energy must be generated from renewable resources such as wind. 
  • The energy was generated within 21-months of use. 
  • The energy must be generated from facilities that are no more than 15 years old.
  • Renewable energy certificates (RECs) support new projects built for the voluntary market because consumers want their money to go toward promoting new renewable energy generation. 
  • There can be no double counting or double claiming of the renewable energy. 
  • Vendors of Greenā€e certified renewable energy are audited annually by a third party to verify their advertising and marketing claims, and to ensure that consumers are getting what they pay for. Find out more at green-e.org. 

“A REC represents the environmental benefits of 1 megawatt hour (MWh) of renewable energy. For every unit of renewable electricity generated, an equivalent amount of RECs is produced, and by purchasing and pairing RECs with your electricity service, you are using and receiving the benefits of that renewable electricity. Your REC purchase helps build a market for renewable electricity. Increased demand for, and generation of renewable electricity has both local and global environmental benefits, including a reduction in emissions. The RECs in Sunwave Wind, Renewable Energy Certificates are verified and certified by Green-e Energy, and Sunwave is required to disclose the quantity, type and geographic source of each certificate. Refer to the Product Content Label to find out more. Green-e Energy verifies the authenticity of each renewable energy certificate.” For detailed information on Green-e Energy certified, visit www.green-e.org.

 

Sunwave Gas + Power REC Products

Sunwave Gas + Power offers Sunwave Wind, our wind REC products for residential and commercial consumers. Sunwave Wind is a Green-e® Energy certified product, generated from 100% wind. 

Sunwave’s Wind REC product meets the environmental and consumer protection standards incorporated by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. Additionally, our Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) are verified by a third party, independent auditor. 

 

Renewable Energy

Wind energy is generated when wind turbines turn automatically with wind pressure. Wind turbines look like oversized fans and they can be found on “wind farms” both onshore and offshore. The energy from the wind turbines is converted into electricity with the assistance of a generator. 

Wind is a natural resource that can never be exhausted. This natural energy source delivers ecological energy with a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions as well.

  • Renewable energy can contribute to protecting the environment for our future generations. 
  • Renewable energy can have a positive impact on global warming and climate change since it’s made from natural resources. 
  • Renewable energy can help create more employment opportunities on wind farms.

 

Authenticity of Renewable Energy 

Purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) does not change the delivery of your electricity service. 

When renewable energy is generated by wind, electricity is created without burning fossil fuels. Purchasing RECs ensures that the energy you buy is generated from those renewable resources. Renewable energy certificates (RECs) are measured in 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) increments of energy that is generated from the wind. 

 

LEED Projects

By purchasing renewable energy certificates (RECs), you can earn LEED points under The United States Green Building Council (USGBC). A mandatory purchase size can vary from 35–50% of the building's electricity usage for two years.” Green  energy is recommended in leading environmental standards like LEED. Find out more about LEED projects at www.usgbc.org.
