Green-e Energy is the leading renewable energy certification and verification program in the U.S., with over 280 participating vendors that sold over 13 million MWh of renewable electricity in 2008. The program provides independent, third party certification to ensure certified renewable energy meets strict environmental and consumer protection standards.
Providers of Green-e Energy Certified renewable energy agree to abide by the Green-e Energy Code of Conduct, and meet strict disclosure and truth-in-advertising requirements. All marketers of Green-e Energy Certified products undergo an annual verification audit to document that the company purchased and/or generated enough quantity and type of renewable energy to meet customer demand and marketing claims.
