Somerville CCE as a Federal Income Tax Deduction
If you are enrolled in the Somerville 100% Local Green option, Green Energy Consumers Alliance is supplying 100% of your Class 1 Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). Green Energy Consumers explained to the Internal Revenue Service that the environmental benefits of renewable energy are enjoyed by everyone, which is why economists would call renewable energy a “public good”. With that logic, the voluntary purchaser of a REC from the Green Energy Consumers Alliance is able to deduct their REC purchase from their federal income taxes if they itemize charitable contributions on their return. As a result, you will receive a letter from Green Energy Consumers Alliance in January that details the amount spent on the 100% Local Green product option which you may deduct.
