How we buy renewable electricity

Grafton Energy Choice purchases renewable energy certificates, or RECs, from renewable energy projects to integrate renewable energy into Grafton’s electricity supply.

RECs are used to determine the environmental content of electricity. Each REC represents proof that 1 megawatt-hour of electricity was generated by a renewable energy resource.

For more information about RECs, visit the Definitions page on this website or visit this page on Mass.gov.
