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.

Decertifications Due to Non-Compliance

Atlantic Energy Group

Due to Atlantic Energy Group's breach of contract, Green-e Energy has decertified Atlantic Energy Group's REC product. Atlantic Energy Group has not complied with the obligations of its contract for Green-e Energy certification, including conducting a third-party verification audit of the sales made to customers in 2015, and so any renewable energy sold to Atlantic Energy Group's customers during 2015 and 2016 is not considered Green-e Energy certified. Customers of Atlantic Energy Group at the time of this breach of contract have not yet been notified, as is required in the Green-e Energy Code of Conduct. For more information, please contact Green-e Energy staff at energy@green-e.org or 415-561-2100. (Posted August 23, 2016)
