Does Broudy really have a Windmill?

Well, actually we do not really have a windmill, yet. However, we do purchase Renewable Energy Certificates equivalent to 100% of our electricity consumption.

Check out our Wind Power Press Release for more details.

What’s are Renewable Energy Certificates?

Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), also known as Green tags, Renewable Energy Credits, or Tradable Renewable Certificates (TRCs), are tradable environmental commodities in the United States which represent proof that 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity was renewable, that is, generated from an eligible renewable energy resource.

These certificates can be sold and traded or bartered and the owner of the REC can claim to have purchased renewable energy. While traditional carbon emissions trading programs promote low-carbon technologies by increasing the cost of emitting carbon, RECs can encourage carbon-neutral renewable energy by providing a production subsidy to electricity generated from renewable sources. It is important to understand that the energy associated with a REC is sold separately and is used by another party. The consumer of a REC receives only a certificate.
