Inertia Resources offers an array of green electricity options to our customers. Renewable electricity supply works by harnessing energy from renewable sources such as wind, solar, hydroelectric, and geothermal power. These sources generate electricity that is fed onto the electric grid, replacing or reducing the need for power from fossil fuel sources.
When a customer chooses a renewable energy plan, the electric supplier purchases Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) equal to the customer’s electricity usage. Each REC represents one megawatt-hour (MWh) of renewable energy added to the grid. Although the electricity flowing to a consumer’s property isn’t exclusively from renewable sources, the purchase of RECs ensures an equivalent amount of renewable energy is produced and added to the grid. By choosing a renewable energy plan, consumers support the growth of the renewable energy sector, reduce reliance on fossil fuels, and contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
