CRS Issues Green Power Reports

December 2002 - The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) has issued its 2001 Verification Report for Green-e certified electricity products offered in both competitive retail markets and utility green pricing programs.

According to CRS, more than 107,000 customers purchased Green-e certified products in California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Connecticut during 2001, creating demand for nearly 930,000 MWh of electricity generated from "eligible" renewable energy sources. Purchases by non-residential customers accounted for about 22% of total sales. Nationwide, five wholesalers and 11 retailers participated in the program offering 26 separate Green-e certified retail products. Eighty percent of the Green-e products sold exceeded the established standards for renewable energy product content.

CRS also recently released a green pricing guide for public utilities, which identifies best practices for designing, implementing, and marketing programs. The findings are based on a survey of public utility green pricing program managers.
