We Can Help with Your LEED Certification
Earn points with our green power, carbon offsets and renewable energy credits.


Did you know green power, carbon offsets and renewable energy credits (RECs) can be applied toward your facility’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification?

That’s right.

According to the LEED v4 Building Design and Construction guidelines published by the U.S. Green Building Council, businesses and government agencies can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) through the use of local and grid-source renewable energy technologies and carbon mitigation projects.

To be eligible for LEED points, you must meet at least some of your building’s total energy use with renewable energy systems, or engage in a five-year contract to purchase qualified green power, carbon offsets or RECs. The green power and RECs must be Green-e® Energy certified.

WGL Energy Services (WGL Energy) offers Green-e® Energy certified wind power and RECs for government, commercial and industrial customers, along with carbon offsets that are Green-e® Climate certified. Green-e® certification is your assurance that our renewable energy and carbon offsets offers meet the environmental and consumer protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions (CRS).

LEED provides a framework for creating healthy, efficient and cost-saving green buildings. As a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement, LEED certifiied facilities can be found in over 165 countries and territories, including our own office space in Washington, D.C. and Tysons Corner, Virginia.

LEED is available for all building, community and home project types – including existing buildings.

There are a number of benefits associated with LEED-certified buildings, including a healthier environment for employees and customers, lower utility costs and a reduced carbon footprint. LEED-certified buildings can even help your business or government agency achieve its sustainability objectives.

Contact our Green Products Manager, Robin Cunningham, on (703) 287-9577 for more on how WGL Energy’s green power, carbon offsets and RECs can help you achieve LEED certification and your corporate sustainability goals.
