As described in the CMLP Strategic Plan, CMLP is purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) to help green our power supply. Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) are tradable, non-tangible energy commodities that provide proof that 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity was generated from a renewable energy resource and was fed into the shared system of power lines which transport energy. Solar renewable energy certificates (SRECs) are RECs that are specifically generated by solar energy.
This YouTube video from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency RECs: Making Green Power Possible explains why RECs make power green.
