October 2005 - The Center for Resource Solutions is seeking additional comments on its proposed Green-e National Certification Standard (PDF 60 KB), which would replace existing regional standards and apply to all types of renewable energy products, including green pricing programs, tradable renewable certificates (TRCs), and competitive market electricity products. Once adopted, the proposed certification criteria will take effect on January 1, 2007.
During its first comment period, CRS received 47 comments from stakeholders, which are available for review on the Green-e Web site. In response to comments received on municipal solid waste, coal co-firing, and new renewables, CRS is considering revisions to the Green-e National Standard as originally proposed. Comments must be submitted using an electronic comment ballot (Word 70 KB) and are due on October 19th, 2005.
