Renewable Energy Credits (RECs)

In North America, renewable power can be purchased and managed in the form of RECs. When you purchase RECs for your business, you reduce the environmental impact of your energy usage. RECs convey the environmental attributes of electricity generated by renewable facilities to the purchaser. Usource can help you offset the energy you use with RECs.

  • RECs enable the purchasing of renewable energy in North America.
  • Certain wind, solar, geothermal, low-impact hydro, and biomass facilities qualify as renewable energy.
  • Your commitment supports renewable power generation in North America and helps create more demand for clean energy.
  • Usource’s RECs are third-party verified by Green-e® Energy.

Solar Energy Options

With multiple solar energy solutions available, including a zero-capital Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), Usource will help you select the ideal solar energy option for your business. PPAs provide electricity at a lower cost than current electricity rates, as well as future price certainty for up to 20 years. The PPA allows the solar equipment to be installed at no cost to you, and you’re not responsible for installation and maintenance.

  • Solar equipment can be installed on a building roof, land, parking lots, and canopies—typically, on any available space that you own.
  • We provide a no-obligation project feasibility assessment.
  • We provide the design/build and will obtain all necessary permits, inspections, and required utility interconnection agreements.
  • Incentives will be highest for early adopters and will decrease over time.
  • There are additional federal tax incentives. We assure all available incentives are applied.
