Our Clean and Renewable Energy Mix

We're working hard to bring clean, reliable energy to millions across Connecticut.

Where Your Energy Comes From

A pie chart showing 33% renewable and non-carbon energy, and 67% non-renewable energy.

In 2022, Eversource will procure Renewable Energy, Non-Carbon Clean Energy and renewable energy certificates (RECs) equal to 33% of our customer usage. 

These sources contribute to Connecticut's clean energy goals by reducing the need for fossil fuel-based energy, or reducing demand during seasonal peak periods

What is renewable energy?

Renewable energy is generated by sources like solar photovoltaic, solar thermal electric, wind energy, small hydropower, landfill methane, geothermal energy, biomass fuel or waste-to-energy facilities. 

What is non-carbon clean energy?

Non-carbon clean energy is generated by sources like combined heat and power, nuclear, demand response programs and energy storage systems.

What are Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs)?

A renewable energy certificate (REC) represents 1 megawatt hour of renewable energy. We purchase RECs from power generators to support the generation of renewable and non-carbon clean energy. 

Committed To Sustainability 

Sustainability is embedded in how we conduct our business today and for future generations, with environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives integrated into the policies and principles that govern our company.
