Renewable Energy Credits – Cash in Hand!
RECs, or Renewable Energy Credits, are property rights to the environmental and non-power qualities of solar electricity generation. This means that the additional energy you produce via your home or commercial Orange County solar energy and heating system can be purchased from you by way of credits from the utility company. Long story short: The electric company will buy your excess energy and you could end up having to pay little or nothing on your electricity bill each month.
The good news gets even better! Starting early next year in 2012, the utility companies will begin paying cash for your RECs. A single REC is created when 1,000 kilowatts of renewable energy are produced. When this happens, Utility companies seek to purchase these RECs in order to meet clean energy requirements set forth by the California Energy Commission.
So you see, an investment into cleaner, greener Orange County Solar Power energy for your home can now literally put money in your pockets.
