How does my offsite green power affect my metrics (score/EUI/ etc.)? Follow

Offsite green power (which comes with RECs) improves your Emissions inventory only – you’ve purchased an emissions benefit, but your energy still comes from the traditional grid.

Offsite green power (RECs) does not affect your Score or Source EUI because they measure the amount and type of fuel your property consumes (the energy efficiency of the property), not the efficiency of the utility (or source) supplying energy to your property.

Green power (both onsite and offsite) has no impact on Site Energy because this is a straight measure of what you need to operate.
