About the Green-e Energy National Standard
Green-e Energy is North America's leading certification program for sales and use of renewable electricity and renewable energy certificates (RECs) made in the voluntary market for renewable energy. Created in 1997, Green-e Energy provides oversight to voluntary renewable energy sales, certifying the majority of all retail voluntary renewable energy sales in the U.S. The Green-e Energy National Standard was developed through an open-stakeholder process in 2004 and 2005, and grew out of regional program standards in place between 1997 and 2004. Periodically, the Standard is assessed to determine if any changes should be made to adapt it to the evolution of the voluntary renewable energy market.
