How It Works



Step 1:
Determine your needs

Determine the energy you would like to match with a REC purchase. Businesses can also take advantage of our partnership with impactChoice, who offer services ranging from assistance with measuring your environmental impact, to strategic planning and the implementation of comprehensive carbon mitigation solutions.

Step 2:
Choose your source

Unlike other companies in the industry, we let you choose your generation source. We currently offer RECs from a range of wind farms in the US.

Step 3:
Purchase your RECs

For most transactions, Green Power Offsets accepts payment via PayPal, so you can be sure that your financial information is securely transmitted and kept confidential.

Step 4:
Receive your certificate!

After you purchase a REC, Green Power Offsets retires the REC from the wind farm you selected, giving you, and only you, credit for the REC's environmental benefits. Then we send you a personalized certificate confirming your total purchased quantity. For business customers, we can provide assistance with CSR reporting, communications and branding.

Why Buy Renewable Energy Credits?


Save money on renewable power

Renewable energy is more affordable than you might think. The average household can add Renewable Energy Credits to the conventional power it already consumes for less than 24¢ per day!


Reduce your carbon footprint

Renewable Energy Credits avoid the emission of carbon dioxide and other pollutants. Each renewable energy credit you purchase eliminates the carbon dioxide emissions from 1,000 kWh of consumed electricity.


Create demand for renewable energy

Buying Renewable Energy Credits helps create demand for additional renewable power, driving much-needed economic development in the typically rural communities in which it is built.


Connect with the green-collar revolution in your area

The wind farms you purchase Renewable Energy Credits from aren't just creating emission-free energy, they’re also creating jobs and supporting the communities in which they’re built. Unlike buying renewable energy from a utility, Green Power Offsets gives you a choice of wind farm sources when you buy Renewable Energy Credits.
