What sets Spring Power & Gas apart from other Maryland electric providers is that we’re an environmentally-friendly supplier using Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and carbon offsets.
RECs are a way to keep track of previously unused renewable energy as it enters the grid. After energy enters the grid, it’s impossible to tell where it came from, so when someone’s unused power feeds back to the grid, the owner gets a REC.
Spring Power & Gas uses RECs by buying an hour of energy from a renewable source like wind or solar for every hour of energy you use.
Carbon offsets are a way to balance out personal carbon emissions. We invest in programs that help reduce carbon emissions. We’ll neutralize any carbon-producing gas you use with investments in carbon offsets.
