Renewable Energy Certificates (REC's)

With a continued commitment to clean energy, the Maryland Institute College of Art supports clean energy with Renewable Energy Certificates (REC's) from Constellation that currently match 50 percent of its annual electricity use.

The REC's supplied are Green-e Energy Certified and sourced from wind energy facilities located in the lower 48 states. Throughout the term of the contract, 50 percent of the electricity MICA uses at the contracted facilities will be matched with RECs. Each REC represents the positive environmental attributes of one megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity generated by a renewable power plant and is retired on behalf of customers wishing to promote their environmental commitment. Through the purchase of RECs, MICA is supporting the operation and development of facilities that generate clean, renewable energy.
