Combating Climate Change

As the effects of climate change continue to rise, reliance on renewable energy sources becomes more important than ever. Many power plants produce electricity by burning fossil fuels. Those greenhouse gases get absorbed into the atmosphere, where they’ll remain for centuries. Without immediate, comprehensive action, those CO2 emissions have the potential to raise the global temperature by anywhere from 4 to 8 degrees by the year 2100.

By switching to renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and hydro power, we can reduce the CO2 emissions that come from fossil fuels, slow the effects of climate change, and improve air and water quality in the surrounding area.

How RECs Help

Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) directly support the replacement of fossil fuels in energy generation with renewable sources. RECs also support the expansion and development of renewable sources. This leads to new jobs being created in those fields, making them more viable power sources.
