Lyon-Lincoln Electric Cooperative is offering a new program to our members! You now have the opportunity to power your home or business with 100% renewable energy. The energy we use to power the homes and businesses of our members comes from a diversified mix of coal, hydro, natural gas, wind, waste heat and nuclear. There’s no specific way to know which source energy comes from once it’s created and sent out on the grid. However, when renewable energy is produced, a renewable energy credit (REC) is created and that REC represents the valuable renewable attributes of that energy form. One REC is equivalent to 1 megawatt hour (MWh) produced by a renewable energy source.
Lyon-Lincoln has RECs available for purchase to offset your current usage with 100% renewable energy through our REC program. The electricity you receive will still be the same reliable, affordable energy you’ve always received from the cooperative but, by going 100% renewable, you’ll be supporting current and future renewable projects in our area.
