Green-e Issues 2004 Verification Report

November 2005 - The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) released a report detailing the verification results for its Green-e certification program. In 2004, more than 100 marketers and utilities offered 56 Green-e certified green power products and reported combined certified renewable energy sales of 3.5 billion kWh—an 18% increase from 2003. Wholesale and retail sales of renewable energy certificates (RECs) represented more than two-thirds of all Green-e certified sales and grew by more than 50% from 2003. Last year, Green-e certified renewable energy was sold in 49 states and represented more than 50% of renewable energy sales in the voluntary market nationally.

Green-e provides independent, third-party certification to ensure renewable energy products meet strict environmental and consumer protection standards, which are established through a collaborative stakeholder process. Providers of Green-e certified renewable energy undergo an annual verification process to document that the company purchased or generated a sufficient amount of renewable energy to serve its customers and support its marketing claims.
