Green-e Releases Year 2000 Statistics

November 2001 - The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) released the Year 2000 Green-e Verification Results (PDF 160 KB) Download Acrobat Reader report, which summarizes the results of Green-e supplier audits and provides statistics on certified products, and green power sales and customers. During 2000, 13 retail green power providers offered a total of 27 Green-e certified products in California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Connecticut. About three-quarters of these products contained 100% renewable energy, while the remainder contained at least 50% renewable energy content as required by Green-e guidelines.

Across the country, more than 163,000 customers purchased Green-e certified products, including about 8,500 non-residential customers; nearly 90% of these customers were in California. Residential customers accounted for about 71% of Green-e power sales. In total, Green-e certified suppliers purchased approximately 1.6 billion kWh of energy from eligible renewable resources to supply their green power products.
