Solar Renewable Energy Certificates
Counter Your Carbon Footprint With Solar RECs
We all need to power the lights, appliances, devices, and vehicles in our lives, both at home and at work. If you live in Wisconsin, the majority of your electricity still comes from coal.
The Switch to Solar (S2S) program helps you counter your carbon footprint through buying solar renewable energy certificates generated in Wisconsin by local organizations and businesses.
Installing solar panels isn’t an option for everyone. Our S2S program brings the benefits of solar power to everyone, making solar accessible for all households and incomes.
What are Solar RECs?
Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) represent the absence of stifling carbon emissions and the environmental benefits of renewable energy generation.
When power is generated through solar, one sREC is created for every megawatt hour of solar electricity created. Solar RECS (sRECs) are the eco benefits from solar generated power.
