CLP Renewable Energy Certificates
CLP customers are welcome to buy our newly launched Renewable Energy Certificates to support the local renewable energy generation. Each unit of electricity carried in a Renewable Energy Certificate represents the electricity produced by local renewable energy sources including solar power, wind power and landfill gas projects, generated or purchased (such as through Feed-in Tariff Scheme) by CLP Power. The Renewable Energy Certificates are introduced to offer an alternative way for our customers to take part in local renewable energy development.
If you purchase a Renewable Energy Certificate, it represents you are supporting local renewable energy development by purchasing electricity generated from local renewable energy sources.
A digital Renewable Energy Certificate will be issued with the following details:
- Name of registered customer
- Amount of renewable electricity purchased
- A unique reference number on each certificate
- Issue date
The unit price of renewable electricity represented in the Renewable Energy Certificate will be based on the prevailing price published in CLP website at the time of purchase. The current pricing for a unit of RE electricity is HK$0.5.
Please refer to the following link on the details of Renewable Energy Certificates:
For the avoidance of doubt, customers are required to pay for their energy consumption at the prevailing tariff rates as billed to their CLP electricity supply account regardless of the CLP REC purchase quantity.
