Green-e Now Available for TRC Products

The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) issued final standards for Green-e certification of green power products supplied with Tradable Renewable Certificates (TRCs), which represent the environmental attributes of renewable electricity. The standards were developed with the assistance of a national advisory committee consisting of more than 100 organizations and stakeholders from around the country. Green-e is offering three classes of TRC certification: retail, wholesale/commercial, and resale.

To be eligible for Green-e certification, TRCs must be derived from new renewable facilities (those that began commercial operation after January 1, 1999) and must be sold in blocks of at least 150 kWh/month or blocks representing at least 25% of a customer's average monthly electricity use. Eligible renewable resources include those that fall under regional or state Green-e or Green Pricing Accreditation definitions, if such definitions exist. Renewable energy facilities developed to meet government mandates or other legal requirements are not eligible for certification.
