Spring Power & Gas stands out among other local New Jersey energy providers in large part due to our use of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and carbon offsets.
RECs are a market-based mechanism that tracks the flow of wind, solar, and other renewable energy into the power grid. Whenever you add clean energy to the general power supply, you get a REC as proof of your contribution.
Spring Power & Gas uses RECs by purchasing generated renewable energy in increments of one megawatt-hour (MWh).
Meanwhile, carbon offsets are financial credits for projects that reduce CO2 emissions to balance or “offset” your carbon footprint. We invest in carbon offsets.
Learn more about RECs and carbon offsets via our Energy FAQ page or our blog for a good read on how you can help contribute to environmental sustainability.
