According to preliminary data, the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) certified 15 million MWh of renewable energy sales in 2007, up more than 50% from 2006. This represents sales to more than 90,000 new residential customers and 50% more commercial customers, for Green-e certified renewable energy. The audited report will be released later in the fall.
The CRS Green-e program provides independent, third-party certification to ensure certified renewable energy meets environmental and consumer protection standards. The program currently certifies products for 190 participating vendors.
