16-0720 v2.1/Embodied Carbon Offset
Are TerraPass Wind, 100% Green-e Wind RECs acceptable for meeting the embodied carbon footprint offset requirement of Imperative 12, LBC v2.1? If not, can you refer me to an acceptable program?
I've calculated the carbon offset requirement for our project at 308 tons. The best Green-e certified renewable energy program I can find is through TerraPass. The EPA carbon equivalency calculator equates 310 tons CO2 with 400,000 kilowatt hours of electricity.
1 Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) = 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) or 1000 kilowatt-hours of
