Platts American Energy Certificates (US RECs)

What are Platts American Energy Certificates (US RECs)?
Platts American Energy Certificates (US RECs) assessment by S&P Global Commodity Insights is the weekly price for the REC certificates, issued from electricity generated, and delivered to the electric grid, from a renewable energy resource. As others EACs, a REC sells separately from the actual electricity. The REC owner retains exclusive rights to claim "using" or "being powered by" the renewable electricity associated with that REC.
