Green-e Energy Certification

Green-e Energy is a voluntary certification program for renewable energy. Green-e Energy sets consumer protection and environmental standards for renewable energy options in three markets - competitive electricity, renewable energy certificates (RECs) and utility green pricing programs. Green-e Energy conducts annual verification on certified options to ensure that they are meeting these standards. Energy options that meet the Green-e Energy National Standard for environmental excellence are eligible to use the Green-e Energy logo to promote their certification. Recent certifications are listed on Press Releases and Advisories.
