Green-e Reports 2002 Green Power Sales

January 2004 - The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) released its Annual Verification Report for the Green-e Renewable Energy Certification Program, which documents a surge in green power sales during 2002. In total, nearly two billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of Green-e certified renewable energy was sold to customers by participating suppliers in 2002.

The CRS report notes that more than 147,000 households and businesses—one in three green power customers nationally—purchased a Green-e certified product in 2002 and that Green-e products represented a 58% market share of total U.S. green power sales. CRS attributes the increase in customers and sales volume to several factors including increased sales in direct access markets and among utilities with green pricing programs, and the development of a national market for tradable renewable certificates.

The Green-e program currently certifies 60 green power products offered by 98 marketers and utilities nationwide. The annual verification audit is an important component of the program, which seeks to build consumer confidence in renewable-based electricity products and spur national demand for renewable electricity.
