Green-e Energy Attestation Forms
The attestation forms below must be used to substantiate the chain of custody of all renweable MWh (renewable electriicty or standalone RECs) used in Green-e Energy certified sales. Different forms apply to facilities based on whether they are registered in an approved electronic Tracking System or not. It is up to the Green-e Energy Participant to ensure that all attestations and chain of custody documentation is provided to their auditor and to Green-e Energy staff during the annual verification process.
