To support N.C renewable energy projects, you can donate $2.50 per “block” of 250 kilowatt-hours, with a minimum of 40 blocks (or $100) per month. To support N.C. carbon offset projects, you can donate $4.00 per “block” of 1,000 pounds. View our brochure here.
Purchasing Renewable Energy Credits and Carbon Offsets
Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) may be purchased to meet a sustainability requirement or goal, to offset your company’s electric usage, or simply to go green. If you need carbon offsets to meet a sustainability requirement or goal, you can purchase them at the same cost of $4.00 per block of 1,000 pounds. Purchases more than $15,000 may qualify for our Brokered Bid product, a more competitive option provided through a custom quote. To learn more or to request a quote, contact Vicky McCann at 919-857-9010.
Whether you are developing your environmental initiative or just looking for ways to strengthen it,
NC GreenPower can help. You can incorporate renewable energy and carbon offsets into your
sustainability practices with donating or purchasing RECs and carbon offsets from NC GreenPower.
