CRS Launches Utility Green Power Accreditation Program

November 1999 - The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS), has launched the first independent accreditation program for utility green pricing programs. The program is designed to recognize and accredit utility programs that use "best practices" in offering green electricity options to customers in non-competitive markets. To receive accreditation, utilities will have to meet stringent standards regarding renewable resource content, product pricing, marketing activities, and information disclosure. Accredited utilities will be required to undergo an annual, independent verification process to document their green power deliveries.

The program will be administered by CRS with input from local stakeholder groups consisting of consumer advocates, environmental groups, utilities, potential utility competitors, and renewable energy advocates. CRS also administers the Green-e certification program for green power products offered in competitive electricity markets.
