JustGreen, a subsidiary of Just Energy Group Inc., has announced that the City of Joliet, Ill., has purchased renewable energy certificates (RECs) to help offset its greenhouse gas emissions and electricity use for the next three years.

According to JustGreen, the RECs purchased by Joliet are sourced from 100% U.S. wind power facilities and certified by Green-e Energy.

"Choosing electricity from renewable resources like wind gives us the power we need to grow, support job creation, cut greenhouse gas emissions and support additional clean, renewable resources in the U.S.A. Partnering with JustGreen to use green power is a smart choice for our community and our economy," says James D. Hock, Joliet’s city manager.
