What the Heck is a REC? plus Clean Power - Healthy Communities Conference

     Dan Pinkel and Al Weinrub of the Local Clean Energy Alliance of the Bay Area have published a new educational paper, "What the Heck is a REC?".  The paper covers the idea of Renewable Energy Certificates and how they can be bundled with the power produced or sold separately, unbundled.  A REC can be voluntary, or sold to comply with a state renewable energy standard.  Not all RECs have the same benefit in terms of encouraging additional renewable energy - this paper will help you navigate the complexity and understand RECs better.
