MC Squared Energy Services, LLC (MC2), a retail electric supply company in Chicago, will celebrate and honor Earth Day 2019 in a unique way.
On April 22, MC2 will retire Midwest-based Green-e Wind Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) equal to 100% of the energy consumption during this day. This includes all residential, commercial, educational, and governmental customers served by MC2 in Illinois and Ohio, states in which the company is a certified retail electric supplier.
These RECs are in addition to existing state mandated Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) requirements.
Chuck Sutton, MC2 founder and president, said he was looking for a unique way to celebrate Earth Day, a worldwide event established in 1970 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. “Our efforts to reduce carbon emissions on Earth Day is just one way we as company can demonstrate our commitment to make the planet we live in a better and safer place for all of our customers,” said Sutton.
MC Squared Energy Services offers electricity supply products and services that are backed by RECs as a way for customers to support the reduction of emissions and help the environment. A REC represents 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity that has been generated from a renewable energy source. Each REC is backed by Green-e, a trusted global leader in energy certification.
To bolster its environmental commitment, MC Squared Energy Services recently introduced its new EcoGreen Power Supply Program. The program is designed to give customers the opportunity to support renewable energy backed by 100% Wind Green e-certified RECS.
