Earlier the week Strategic Energy, a national provider of retail electricity to commercial and industrial customers, announced it is powering its corporate headquarters with 100 percent renewable electricity.
Strategic Energy’s purchase of 300,000 kilowatt-hours of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) – an amount equal to its annual electricity usage – reflects its commitment to supporting electricity derived from non-depleting, natural energy flows such as sunshine, wind, water and hydrogen. RECs, also known as “green tags,” have evolved in the deregulated era as an easy, cost-effective way for businesses to derive all or a portion of their electricity usage from renewable energy sources.
“Electric choice gives customers a host of new products and services to choose from to meet business objectives,” said Jeff Buxton, Executive Vice President of Marketing for Strategic Energy.“As a pioneer in competitive electricity, we’re proud to play our part to protect the environment and help promote the benefits of environmentally friendly products and services.
