  21. Green Product. Electric – Your purchase of Electricity under this Agreement causes the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and supports renewable production in the region of generation. RECs do not contain electricity. A REC represents the environmental benefits of 1 megawatt hour (MWh) of renewable energy that can be paired with electricity. For every unit of renewable electricity generated, an equivalent amount of RECs is produced, and by purchasing and pairing RECs with your service you are using and receiving the benefits of that renewable energy. Your REC purchase also helps build a market for renewable energy. Increased demand for, and generation of, renewable energy helps reduce conventional energy generation in the region where the renewable energy generator is located. It also has other local and global environmental benefits which may include emitting little or no regional air pollution or carbon dioxide. The RECs in a Green-e ® Energy certified product are verified and certified by Green-e ® Energy, and the seller of a Green-e ® Energy certified product is required to disclose the quantity, type and geographic source of each certificate. Green-e Energy has only certified the RECs, which may be sourced from outside of your local energy distribution area. Please see the Product Content Label provided at http://www.Alphagasandelectric.com for this information. Green-e ® Energy also verifies that the renewable energy certificates are not sold more than once or claimed by more than one party. For information on Green-e ® Energy please visit its website, www.Green-e.org. Please see the Product Content Label for more information. Gas – Your purchase of Gas under this Agreement causes the purchase of carbon offsets and supports renewable production in the region of generation. These carbon offsets are certified by Green-e® Climate, which requires companies to provide their customers with this notice of Price, Terms, and Conditions of service. For more information about Green-e Climate, visit www.green-e.org/climate, email climate@green-e.org, or call (415) 561-2100. These carbon offsets represent the reduction of a specific quantity of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. By purchasing these offsets, you alone have the right to all associated claims about the environmental benefits they embody. Carbon offsets are to be regarded as a real environmental commodity, not a donation or investment in a future emissions reduction project. The verified GHG emissions reductions you purchased are sourced from projects that have been validated and registered under high-quality project standards. The Carbon Offset Content (Label located at http://www.Alphagasandelectric.com) represents the mix of project types, locations, and verification programs that will be used to supply your offsets. The actual percentages or metric tons of GHG emissions reductions by type may vary by a small percentage. In the case of a significant variance, the Seller of the Certified Offsets is obligated to provide you with more accurate historical disclosure. For more information see the Green-e® Climate Code of Conduct available at www.green-e.org.
  22. Promotion: “Free Month Energy” program for RESIDENTIAL CUTSOMERS. This promotion is only activated for RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMERS once you have received your 12th consecutive bill from your utility with Alpha as your commodity supplier.
