MEC Now Offers Renewable Energy Credits

For members interested in seeing the development and expansion of renewable energy sources, MEC now offers electric service backed 100% by Renewable Energy Certificates (Rider GT). This Rider is available on a voluntary basis as a “companion rate” to any residential customer for the entire month’s electricity usage. After a member signs up for electric service backed 100% by Renewable Energy Certificates Rider, an additional charge of $0.015 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) is added to the monthly bill. This is a sell-at-cost charge with no profit or added fee for MECKLENBURG ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE.

For every 1,000 kWh sold, MEC will purchase a Renewable Energy Certificate from Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC). Renewable Energy Certificates are produced every time a renewable source (windmill, solar array, hydro, etc.) generates 1,000 kWh. At this time all Renewable Energy Credits offered by ODEC will be sourced from one or more of the following:

The Armenia Mountain Wind Farm in north-central Pennsylvania (Tioga and Bradford counties)

The Stony Creek Wind Farm in south-western Pennsylvania (Somerset County)

The Criterion Wind Farm in Western Maryland (under construction in Garrett County)
