A one-page summary of why certification & verification are important
Green-e Energy provides added value through quality assurance, consumer confidence, and marketing support.

Consumer Confidence & Quality Assurance

  • Quality Assurance – Your renewable energy option will meet rigorous environmental and consumer protection standards.
  • Consumer Confidence – Third-party verification gives your customers confidence in their choice of renewable energy option and supplier.
  • Supplier Qualification – Many large customers (Commercial & Industrial, federal, state and local governments) require Green-e certification in their solicitations.
  • Eligibility and Recognition – Your large customers can participate in some of the nation’s leading large user green power purchasing recognition programs such as the U.S. EPA's Green Power Partnership, U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED standard, and others. No other organization can confer the Green-e logo, even if the supply meets our published standards (see Green-e "Certifiable" is NOT Green-e Certified [PDF] to learn more).
  • Membership in the Power Marketers Advisory Committee or Utility Green Pricing Advisory Committee – Forums for discussion about market strategies, state regulatory compliance and renewable energy outreach programs.

Logo Use & Marketing Support

  • Product Marketing Support – Include your product on nationally distributed educational and promotional materials and the Green-e website, the source for finding the best renewable energy options. Green-e has dedicated staff that participates in national and regional conferences and promote Green-e certified options to a broad audience of residential, business and government purchasers.
  • Promotional Product Launch – Newly certified products are introduced to the market with a national press release to major media and the Green-e stakeholder network, and an announcement in the Green-e newsletter. 
  • Green-e Logo Use – Your company can use the nationally recognized trademarked Green-e logo to promote your renewable energy option and gain public recognition. You customers can also sign up for Green-e Marketplace to promote their purchase of certified renewable energy.
