Wisconsin Utilities First to Seek Green-e Accreditation

February 2000 - A group of Wisconsin stakeholders has become the first to pursue accreditation for utility green pricing programs under a process recently announced by the Center for Resource Solutions. The accreditation program is designed to recognize utility programs that use "best practices" in offering green electricity options to customers in non-competitive markets. To receive accreditation, utilities have to meet stringent standards regarding renewable resource content, product pricing, marketing activities, and information disclosure. Accredited utilities will also be required to undergo an annual, independent verification process to document their green power deliveries.

Four Wisconsin utilities currently offer some type of green power product to their customers: Madison Gas and Electric, Wisconsin Electric, Wisconsin Public Service, and Dairyland Power Cooperative, which offers green power to its 27 member distribution cooperatives.
