The electricity sector accounts for 30% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. That’s more than any other economic sector in the U.S.! According to the EPA, carbon dioxide (CO2) released from the combustion of fossil fuels is responsible for a majority of those emissions.
When we purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from wind farms on your behalf, you are helping to increase the demand for renewable energy, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, and ultimately helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
You can track your individual impact on your Arcadia dashboard.
The clean kWh displayed on your dashboard represent the amount of wind energy that you have supported since becoming an Arcadia member. The clean impact section represents the tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent of that amount of energy.
