Arcadia Power Decertified Due to Non-Compliance
Posted April 17, 2018, updated April 20, 2018.
Please be advised that Arcadia Power is no longer a participant in the Green-e® Energy certification program, effective April 10, 2018. Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) has removed Arcadia Power from the Green-e® Energy program, and terminated for cause its contract for certification of the “Arcadia Power Wind Energy” REC product.
CRS took this action in response to Arcadia Power’s failure to comply with several Green-e® Energy program requirements concerning product marketing and Green-e® logo use. In particular, the company violated rules in the Green-e® Energy Code of Conduct regarding product representation; information disclosure to customers (including product content, price, terms and conditions); the proper display of the Green-e® logo; and submission of marketing materials for Green-e® review.
This decertification applies on a going-forward basis. Arcadia Power's sales of its “Arcadia Power Wind Energy” REC product between July 1, 2015 and December 31, 2016 remain Green-e® certified and are not affected by this action. Sales of this product between January 1, 2017 and April 9, 2018 are subject to verification in accordance with Green-e® Energy program requirements. Decisions concerning 2017 sales are expected to be made in August 2018. CRS is not able to comment on the status of individual sales during the periods that remain subject to verification until a final determination is made.
Pursuant to Section V.E of the Green-e® Energy Code of Conduct, Arcadia Power is required to notify its customers of decertification within 60 days.
