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.

Products with Unsubmitted Verification Materials for 2015 Sales Reporting

To verify that each company offering a Green-e Energy certified renewable energy product met the requirements of the Green-e Energy National Standard for their certified sales in 2015, each participating company must have submitted an audited report and other materials by 11:59pm Pacific time on Wednesday, June 1, 2016. Green-e Energy certified products for which completed verification submissions were not received and that were not granted an extension will be decertified in accordance with the terms in the Reporting Year 2015 Annual Verification Submission Timeline and Deadlines. Each company offering a Green-e Energy certified renewable energy product for which completed verification submissions were received late incur late fees due to late submission. Payment of late fees is considered to be part of the Verification Submission, and the Verification Submission is not considered complete until payment has been made. Payment is due within 30 days of the invoice, and if not received in that period, the participant that submitted materials late will be relisted on this site until payment is made or 30 more days have passed, whichever is shorter. In the case that payment is still not received within this second 30-day period, all of the participant's products will be decertified.

As of July 18, 2016 at 11:37 PM PT, the following companies had not yet submitted all necessary verification-related materials or late fees for 2015 sales:
