November 2001 - The Board of the Green-e certification program voted to allow utilities with accredited green pricing programs to use the Green-e logo, provided the program meets minimum renewable resource content requirements. Commercial and industrial customers purchasing green power through accredited utility programs will also be allowed to use the logo in accordance with established Green-e secondary use standards.
Green pricing accreditation standards are in place in Colorado, Wisconsin, Iowa and the service territory of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), while standards development activities are underway in Florida, Georgia, and Minnesota. To date, three utility green pricing programs have been accredited: Madison Gas & Electric, Wisconsin Electric, and TVA.
