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.

Decertifications Due to Non-Compliance
Clean and Green
On November 7, 2007, Green-e Energy decertified Clean and Green
's REC product, called Clean and Green RECs
. Clean and Green may no longer sell a Green-e Energy certified product nor may it use the Green-e logo. Clean and Green RECs was decertified because Clean and Green failed to complete Green-e Energy required verification procedures for its sales during calendar year 2006. Green-e Energy is working with Clean and Green to ensure that customers who purchased their product in 2006 and 2007 did in fact receive the product they were promised, as Clean and Green is still under contractual obligation to provide these assurances in accordance with Green-e Energy's governing documents.
