Through purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (REC), customers may show their support for the development of renewable energy (RE) in Hong Kong. The revenue from the sale of REC will offset in part the additional expenses arising from the Feed-in Tariff Scheme. REC will be available for purchase from 1 January 2019.


Key Scheme Features

  • REC is a voluntary scheme
  • Electricity sold under REC:
    • represents the corresponding amount of electricity from local RE sources (including solar photovoltaic and wind power systems) generated or purchased by HK Electric over a period of time
    • is measured in blocks of 100 units
    • is priced at HK$0.5 per unit effective from 1 January 2019 (a premium on top of normal electricity tariff rate)
  • Sold REC cannot be cancelled or refunded. Successful subscribers cannot re-sell or trade REC or grant a third party any form of interest in the REC

Eligibility

All registered customers of HK Electric are eligible to purchase REC.
