Powering Change with Every Purchase: What sets Gridizen apart is our commitment to tangible impact. With every purchase you make, we contribute to a clean energy future by procuring one renewable energy certificate. This means that for each cart checkout, Gridizen will ensure that 1,000 kWh of renewable energy benefits are injected into the U.S. grid. 

Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) play a pivotal role in advancing the transition to a clean energy future. These certificates represent the environmental attributes of one thousand kilowatt-hours (kWh) of renewable electricity generated and help quantify the positive impact of clean energy sources. Legally recognized, RECs serve as a crucial tool in promoting and tracking renewable energy production across the United States. By purchasing RECs, individuals and businesses can directly contribute to the support and growth of renewable energy, even if they are not physically located near a renewable energy project. The purchase of RECs channels funds back into the renewable energy sector, providing financial support to projects such as solar, wind, and hydropower. This financial backing incentivizes further investment in clean energy infrastructure, supporting the ongoing shift towards a more sustainable and cleaner energy grid.

Gridizen will procure RECs annually. This is because REC purchases occur through REC brokers that only sell in bulk quantifies. At the end of each year, Gridizen will post a summary of the RECs purchased and where possible the specific renewable energy facilities supported.
