The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is purchasing renewable energy certificates to meet the goals set forth in Executive Order 13423 and 13514 and the Energy Policy ACT of 2005 which calls for federal agencies to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings, promote the use of renewable energy, and reduce the energy-derived greenhouse gas emissions from their buildings. This purchase is a cost-effective way for the IRS to meet the established goals while responding in a positive manner on its annual energy report.
