Green-e Issues New National Standard

The Center for Resource Solutions announced the release of a new Green-e National Standard (PDF 56 KB) for certification of renewable energy products, which will replace all previous region and product-specific, Green-e criteria documents.

The new standard, which will go into effect on January 1, 2007, provides a single, consistent nationwide standard for green power certification. Green-e held two comment periods and received comments from more than 100 stakeholders during the standard development process.

The Green-e program provides independent, third party certification to ensure certified renewable energy meets strict environmental and consumer protection standards. Currently, more than 100 marketers and utilities throughout North America offer Green-e certified renewable energy products. Collectively these suppliers sold 3.5 billion kWh of certified renewable energy in 2004.
