JuiceEco

Drive cleaner & smarter

Accelerate into 100% clean driving

Electric cars, while cleaner than traditional gas cars, most often rely on the local power grid to get going. When the local grid isn’t powered by 100% clean, renewable energy, neither are electric cars. JuiceEco enables EV drivers everywhere to match the electricity used to charge their electric cars with zero-emission, 100% renewable energy.

Matching your EV charging electricity consumption with zero-emission, 100% renewable energy is quick and easy with JuiceEco

What is a Renewable Energy Certificate (REC)?

RECs have been created to help renewable energy generators harness a second revenue stream, in addition to selling electricity, based on the environmental benefits of the generation. In a sense, a REC is a representation of the rights to the “greenness” of electricity generated.

 

By purchasing a JuiceEco REC, EV drivers capture these environmental benefits produced somewhere on the grid, even when clean energy may not be abundantly available nearby.

FAQs

What does an EV driver do with a REC?

With RECs, EV drivers can avoid greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and create more demand for zero-emission, renewable energy, ultimately accelerating the transition to 100% clean energy. Most EV drivers can feel good about facilitating (or participating in) a cleaner solution needed for transportation. JuiceEco is one tangible option to avoid GHG emissions and charge cleaner at home.

 

How is a REC different from the electricity EV drivers use at home and pay for via their electric utility?

From the elegant description of Vox Writer, David Roberts: “The REC represents the social and environmental benefits of a megawatt-hour of clean energy. You can think of it as the mirror image of a carbon tax: Rather than putting a negative value on carbon emissions, it puts a positive value on clean generation. The creation of RECs splits "green electricity" into two separate revenue streams: greenness and electricity. The electricity is sold as KWh. The greenness is sold as RECs. A Renewable Energy Credit is effectively a certificate of property rights over one unit of greenness.”

 

What is Green-e® Certification?

The Green-e® Energy certification program, administered by the non-profit Center for Resource Solutions (CRS), is the trusted global leader in clean energy certification. Through the Green-e® Energy program, CRS certifies renewable energy that meets the highest standards in North America: it must be generated from new facilities, marketed with complete transparency and accuracy, and delivered to the purchaser, who has sole title. Green-e® staff verifies the entire chain of custody of certified renewable energy from generation to retirement to ensure individuals and businesses are getting exactly what they paid for.
