The Renewable Generation Energy Purchase (RGEP) program is a voluntary customer payment that the City uses to buy renewable energy credits (REC’s) to offset the environmental impact of the power we consume. 

Sums collected from participants are pooled and used to make REC purchases from suppliers who have generated energy from a variety of renewable sources, including wind, solar, and landfill gas.  Through this process, renewable energy generators receive a compensation to help offset the additional costs related to producing green energy.
