100% Carbon-offset Energy
Why Arcline by RACV believes in cleaner energy
It's easy to choose cleaner energy with our 100% carbon-offset energy plan, helping you take the next step with solar, and providing battery and electric vehicle charging installations in your home.
The home you live in is an important factor in how you can make a difference with cleaner energy, including whether you rent or own your own home, drive an electric vehicle, or have the roof space for solar panel installation.
How do you carbon offset your energy?
When an electricity generator feeds energy into the grid, electrons make their way along electrical poles and wires in your home. At this point in time, you can't tell if those electrons are from a renewable or fossil fuel generator. So, one of our first practical steps when you switch Arcline by RACV is to fully carbon-offset your energy with government-certified carbon credits (CERs), recognised under Australia's recognised National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS).
Carbon credits or CERs are a type of emissions unit purchased and surrendered by Arcline by RACV on our customers' behalf. One carbon credit represents approximately one tonne of carbon dioxide that has been offset in the atmosphere. The amount of CERs purchased is equal to the total amount of energy we expect our customers to use over the next year, carbon-offsetting your energy.
We continue to provide 100% carbon-offset energy by purchasing additional CERs if Arcline by RACV customers use more energy than expected.
