CWLP Renewable Choice Program

CWLP customers who want to neutralize the environmental impact of their monthly energy usage can do so by purchasing renewable energy credits (RECs). RECs are certificates provided by “green”-energy producers that guarantee they are generating electricity using only eligible renewable energy sources (such as solar, wind or biomass). One REC is equal to one megawatt-hour (MWH) of “green” electricity. A MWH is 1000 kilowatt-hours (kWh).
