Meet Sustainable Energy Goals with WeOffset
What Is WeOffset?
WeOffset is a renewable energy program that puts the buying power to offset non-renewable energy forms in your company's hands. By participating in WeOffset, you're choosing to be a part of sustainable change by increasing the demand for renewable energy.
Obstacles that businesses looking at renewable energy solutions may face can be:
- Upfront material and installation costs
- Additional structural improvements, equipment repairs and ongoing maintenance
- Potentially "negative" curb appeal
- Building orientation not conducive, or neighboring structures/landscaping interfering with solar installations
- Valuable real estate needed for installations
How Does It Work?
WeOffset offers a completely "hands-off" approach for businesses to meet renewable energy or sustainability goals. There's nothing to build, maintain, or set-up on site to be a part of this program. WeOffset participants help ensure we're bringing new, green energy into our energy pool with no up-front costs and a low unit cost.
Wind turbines at our South Form Wind Farm provide Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) for every 1,000 kWh of renewable energy produced. Each REC is serialized, independently recorded, and tracked through Midwest Renewable Energy Tracking System (M-RETS).
You can choose to offset energy for a product line, or some or all of your organization's carbon footprint by deciding how many kWh your company would like to offset. We will retire an equivalent number of RECs based on your organization's participation in the WeOffset program.
A certificate indicating the number of RECs that were retired on your company's behalf will be provided to verify your support and achievement in sustaining renewable energy. The RECs are yours to market as you see fit and can no longer be claimed or marketed by anyone else, including MP&W.

WeOffset is an easy, affordable and completely customizable solution to help you meet renewable energy and sustainability goals through carbon offsetting. When your company participates, you become a progressive, renewable energy leader and reduce the demand for non-renewable forms of energy.
