Renewable Energy Credit


What is a Renewable Energy Credit?

One Renewable Energy Credit or "REC" represents 1 MW or 1,000 kWh's of electricity generated from renewable energy resources which include: such as biofuels, biodiesel, biomethane, geothermal, hydro power, solar, waste heat recovery or wind.

Benefits of renewable energy production;

Eliminates Greenhouse Gas Emissions through production of "Zero Emission Energy."

Reduces dependence and "addiction" on foreign oil.

Reduces overall use of fossil fuels.

Promotes renewable energy sources and renewable energy technologies.


What is "Net Zero Energy?"

Net Zero Energy - when applied to a home or commercial building, simply means that they generate as much power and energy as they consume, when measured on an annual basis.

The U.S. Army now has a Net Zero Energy initiative to help reduce/eliminate America's use of foreign oil  - particularly oil from muslim/middle-east countries - which literally saves the lives of our brave boys /soldiers in the military. 

Our Founder was first involved in Net Zero Energy in 2001 - 2002 with consulting engagements and investments in multiple real estate developments, renewable energy technologies, solar cogeneration and solar trigeneration systems, Brad Pitt / Global Green Rebuild New Orleans Competition and the Solar Decathlon competition.

We provide Net Zero Energy and off-the-grid architectural & custom home/commercial buildings anywhere in the USA.

Net Zero Energy Buildings Are The Next Frontier

Revenue from net-zero energy buildings will grow rapidly over the next 20 years, reaching almost $690 billion 
by 2020 and nearly $1.3 trillion by 2035, projects Pike Research. That's a compound annual growth rate of 43%.

Net Zero Energy Buildings Are Coming,
What About The Buildings Already Standing?

What is

"EcoGeneration" is the term we created in 1999 to describe the economic and ecological benefits and advantages of Clean Power Generation, Pollution Free Power and a number of other "renewable energy technologies."

The ecological and economic benefits we provide our clients translates directly into huge savings for our ecology by significantly reducing, and sometimes eliminating the pollution typically associated with power generation. The economic benefits our customers enjoy include saving as much as 90% of the costs they once spent for fuel, the public relations advantages that go hand-in-hand with EcoGeneration as well as the benefit of being viewed as a "good neighbor" by the communities they are located in. 

EcoGeneration also seeks to minimize the "waste-heat" that is also present in the generation of power and energy in about 500,000 smoke stacks found at power plants and other facilities that have turbines and engines.  Other sources of waste heat include; furnaces, boilers and chimney-stacks.  We provide engineering services relating to waste heat recovery and assist our clients convert the waste-heat into other useful energy products such as electricity, hot water, steam and chilled water.  We call this "recycled energy." 

Depending on our clients' requirements, we may implement energy solutions that include technologies such as; cogeneration/combined-cycle, trigeneration, quadgeneration, absorption/adsorption chillers, hydrogen fuel cells, solar, geothermal and "waste to energy" or "waste to fuel" fuels such as organic diesel/soybean diesel, digester gas or landfill gas. 

EcoGeneration provides not only ecological benefits, but also economic benefits, as we oftentimes reach and exceed system efficiencies of 90% - a dramatic increase over typical power plants that remain at only 27% - 33% efficient. What this means to our customers is they save huge amounts of money in the form of fuel savings, because the "waste-heat" we recover, is no longer wasted, since we are able to convert that waste-heat into the useful energy they need (hot water, steam and chilled water).

What is Trigeneration?

A trigeneration plant is a cogeneration power plant that has added absorption chillers for producing chilled water from the heat that would have been wasted from a cogeneration power plant.

In addition to the economic benefits and advantages, trigeneration plants reduce our dependence on foreign energy supplies and help our environment by dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions such as carbon dioxide - when compared to typical power plants. Trigeneration plants have been hailed the "hat-trick of the energy industry" with system efficiencies approaching and exceeding 90%.

Trigeneration plants are very energy efficient, conserve natural resources and reduce fuel consumption as the system operates at such high efficiencies.

Cogeneration and trigeneration power plants are about 90% efficient and approximately 300% more efficient than "central power plants" that average 27% to 40% efficiency. When fueled with renewable fuel, cogeneration and trigeneration plants are carbon neutral, producing ZERO (net) greenhouse gas emissions and the optimum solution for clients seeking to reduce their energy expenses and greenhouse gas emissions.
