REC Program


Whetstone Electric has Renewable Energy Credits 

(RECs) available for purchase to offset your current usage with 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% renewable energy options. 
The electricity you receive will still be the same reliable, affordable energy you have always received from Whetstone Electric but, by participating in this program, your home or business will be supporting current and future renewable projects. By purchasing RECs, your business could add value to your products or services, promote future regional renewable projects and showcase your support for renewable energy sources. 


What is a Renewable Energy Credit 
(REC)? 1 megawatt hour produced by a renewable energy source equals 1 REC. RECs are also called Green Tags and they represent the valuable renewable attributes of wind energy.
Do I need to purchase any special equipment?
No special equipment is needed. Whetstone Electric will fulfill all your electric needs while you enjoy the benefits of powering your business with renewable energy.
Where do RECs come from?
Our RECs come from several wind farms in our region that supply renewable energy to our cooperative.
How much does it cost to power my home or business on 100% renewable energy?
$1 per MWh. Example: If you use 1200 kWh per month, participating in the REC program would add $1.20 + tax to your monthly bill. 


Sign up for Whetstone Electric Cooperative’s REC program and showcase your support for renewable energy.
