Businesses can protect the environment with Renewable Energy Credits
For as little as $1.39 per 100-kilowatt hours, your business can support renewable energy through SRP's Renewable Energy Credit (REC) program. RECs allow you to offset power to your business with an environmentally friendly source — wind energy.
Here's what you can do by signing up for SRP's REC program:
- Set yourself apart from the crowd: Your customers will appreciate your environmental commitment, and we'll help you spread the word. SRP offers promotional incentives that increase in accordance with the amount of RECs you purchase.
- Create a market for green solutions: All of the money your business spends on RECs will guarantee the electricity consumed is replaced with wind power.
- Invest in the future: By signing up for RECs, you improve the environment for future generations. It's a fact: Purchasing just six blocks of RECs each month will reduce the same amount of carbon dioxide as a forest the size of a football field (Source: EPA Power Profiler).
How to participate
RECs are sold in 100-kilowatt-hour (kWh) blocks. Each block you order costs $1.39 and will appear as an additional line item on your electric bill.
You can sign up for as many blocks as you like; two blocks would cost $2.78 per month, three blocks would cost $4.17 per month, and so on. Or you can choose to offset 100%, 50%, 25% or 10% of your energy usage. We can calculate this for you. Just e-mail us at email@example.com or call (602) 236-2328. Please have your account number ready.
An average Arizona home uses 1,200 kWh hours per month. Therefore to offset this electricity usage with 100% renewable energy credits, 12 blocks would need to be purchased at a cost of $16.68 per month.

Your purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) supports renewable electricity production in the region of generation. 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 also helps build a market for renewable electricity. Increased demand for and generation of renewable electricity helps reduce conventional electricity generation in the region where the renewable electricity generator is located. It also has other local and global environmental benefits which may include emitting little or no regional air pollution or carbon dioxide.
RECs in SRP's REC Program are verified and certified by Green-e Energy, and SRP is required to disclose the quantity, type and geographic source of each certificate. Please see the Product Content Label for this information. Green-e Energy also verifies that the renewable certificates are not sold more than once or claimed by more than one party.
