You can choose to supplement your electricity plan by making it Green. Green energy comes from renewable sources like hydro, wind, and solar. The creation of electricity through these sources creates a Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) which is a means of controlling the finite inventory of electrons that were generated.
As a consumer, you can select from 25% or 100% of your electricity plan from ATCOenergy to come from renewable sources for a small premium. The Green premium is charged on your consumption in kWh.
Based on your selected Green percentage, your consumption is calculated to ensure you’ve been allocated the right amount of Green energy and that the RECs are retired on your behalf.
ATCOenergy tries to source all of its Green energy from Alberta-based sources.
Just our way of making positive energy a little greener!
