Carbon Offsets

Last week we discussed how Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) work, this week we will focus on Carbon Offsets.


When you purchase a carbon offset, it funds the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in one place, to make up for their use in another. Carbon offsets can also fund other renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind power.


People often use the term carbon offsets interchangeably with RECs. However, the two are not the same. While RECs are measured in Megawatt hours, carbon offsets are calculated in metric tons of CO2 emissions.


To learn more about how you can offset your carbon footprint with WGL Energy visit our website or call 1-844-4ASK-WGL (1-844-427-5945) to speak with one of our energy experts.
