The WyRECs program is an innovative means for Powder River Energy Corporation (PRECorp) to meet its Vision 2030 strategic theme of “Member Engagement and Community Development” by facilitating business creation, development and services to benefit PRECorp communities.
The program offers the sale of renewable energy credits to companies within and outside of the state of Wyoming with sustainability objectives interested in reducing their environmental impact. Green House Data of Cheyenne, is one of those companies who is interested in offsetting their footprint with Green Energy. Green House Data purchases renewable energy credits from PRECorp, who reinvests those funds in community development projects. The program is made possible because of PRECorp’s membership in Basin Electric Power Cooperative, which has significant wind energy projects throughout its service territory.
Proceeds from the WyREC transactions are available to reinvest in economic development and other community related projects specifically located in the PRECorp service area, and may be leveraged by businesses seeking grant and loan programs from the Wyoming Business Council.
For more information about the program or how to offset your energy consumption, and invest in Wyoming, contact WyREC Program Manager Laura Ladd at (307) 413-3334; or PRECorp VP of Member Service Jeff Bumgarner at 1-800-442-3630.
