Green-e Energy Certified

Source

Green-e is the leading independent certification and verification program for renewable energy and greenhouse gas emission reductions in the US retail market. It is a program of Center for Resource Solutions (CRS, www.resource-solutions.org). CRS designs and operates national and international programs that support the increased supply and use of renewable energy resources such as wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, low-impact hydroelectric power, and other clean energy sources.

Green-e Energy cetifies renewable energy that meets environmental and consumer protection standards that Green-e developed in conjunction with leading environmental, energy and policy organizations. Green-e Energy also requires that sellers of certified renewable energy disclose clear and useful information to potential customers, allowing consumers to make informed choices.

When you see the Green-e logo and buy renewable energy that is Green-e Energy Certified, you know that:

You are supporting new renewable resources: The windmill, solar panel or other generator that produced your renewable energy was built since 1997.

There has been no double selling: You are the only one that can claim the benefits of the renewable energy you bought; these benefits include the fact that renewable energy produces little or no greenhouse gas emissions.

Your purchase goes beyond business as usual: You are buying renewable energy beyond what is required by law or claimed against a mandate, and are helping expand the production of renewable energy in the U.S. and Canada.

Green-e is a voluntary consumer protection program that certifies superior renewable energy options

offered by utilities and marketers in the voluntary renewable energy market. It is administered by Center

for Resource Solutions, a nonprofit based in San Francisco, CA. All Green‑e Energy requirements

and auditing protocols are publicly available and can be found at www.green‑e.org/energy.
