April 16, 2019

-- MC2 will retire Midwest generated Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) equal to 100 percent of its customers’ energy consumption on April 22 to celebrate Earth Day 2019 -- MC2 supports the development of sustainable renewable generation resources in the Midwest -- An equivalent to over 2,800 metric tons of CO2 will be eliminated from the atmosphere

CHICAGO, April 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MC Squared Energy Services, LLC (MC2), a leading retail electric supply company located in the heart of Chicago, will celebrate and honor Earth Day 2019 in a unique way. On Monday, April 22, MC2 will retire Midwest-based Green-e Wind Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) equal to 100 percent of the energy consumption during this day. This includes all residential, commercial, educational and governmental customers served by MC2 in Illinois and Ohio, states in which the company is a certified retail electric supplier. These RECs are in addition to existing state mandated Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) requirements.

Chuck Sutton, MC2 founder and president, said he was looking for a unique way to celebrate Earth Day, a worldwide event established in 1970 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. On Earth Day 2019 MC2 is projected to retire renewable energy certificates equivalent to over 2,800 metric tons of CO2 eliminated from the atmosphere. Sutton says the company is excited to do its part to help reduce the world’s carbon footprint. “Our efforts to reduce carbon emissions on Earth Day is just one way we as company can demonstrate our commitment to make the planet we live in a better and safer place for all of our customers.”

MC Squared Energy Services offers electricity supply products and services that are backed by RECs as a way for customers to support the reduction of emissions and help the environment. A REC represents 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity that has been generated from a renewable energy source. Each REC is backed by Green-e, a trusted global leader in energy certification.

To bolster its environmental commitment, MC Squared Energy Services recently introduced its new EcoGreen Power Supply Program. The program is designed to give customers the opportunity to support renewable energy backed by 100 percent Wind Green e-certified RECS.

The MC2 EcoGreen Power Program is Green-e Energy certified and meets the environmental and consumer protection standards established by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. For more information on Green-e, visit https://www.green-e.org/.
