Agera Energy creates some of its electricity from renewable sources. They get some of their power from wind farms which help homeowners and businesses do their part for environmental sustainability. If a customer signs up for the Pure Wind option Agera Energy will match it at either 50 percent or 100 percent with RECs (Renewable Energy Certificates) that they obtain from wind farms located across America.
The average company uses about 500,000 kWh of electricity a year. Agera Energy says that if they sign up for the Pure Wind program they can save enough CO2 to equal over 74 cars on the road, 112 tons of waste, or nearly 375,00 pounds of coal. This is also equivalent to planting 9,107 trees and how much CO2 they will pull out of the air over a 10 year period.
