FAQ

  • What are the best sources of renewable electricity for my business?
    Collapse
    The best sources of renewable electricity for your business depend on your location, consumption profile, sustainability goals, and budget. Some of the most common sources of renewable electricity are solar, wind, hydro, biomass, and geothermal. Each source has its own advantages and disadvantages, such as availability, scalability, reliability, and cost. STRIVE by STX can help you assess your renewable electricity needs and preferences, and provide you with the best renewable electricity options for your business.

  • What are the benefits of HedgeZero solutions?
    Collapse

  • How do Virtual Power Purchase Agreements (VPPAs) work?
    Collapse
    Virtual Power Purchase Agreements (VPPAs) are long-term contracts between a renewable electricity generator and a company, where the company agrees to pay a fixed price for the electricity produced by the generator, and the generator agrees to sell the electricity to the wholesale market on behalf of the company. The company receives the EACs associated with electricity generation, and the difference between the fixed price and the market price is settled financially between the parties. VPPAs allow companies to support new renewable electricity projects and hedge against future price volatility, without taking physical delivery of the electricity.
  • What are Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs)?
    Collapse
    Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs) are instruments that certify one megawatt-hour (MWh) of renewable electricity generation. EACs can be traded separately from physical electricity, allowing consumers to claim the use of renewable electricity regardless of their location or grid connection. EACs are also known as Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), Guarantees of Origin (GOs), or International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-RECs), depending on the region and market.
