Green-e Certification Programs The Green-e programs help individuals and organizations increase their use of renewable energy and reduce carbon emissions by providing not just consumer protection, but also advocacy, education, and market oversight.

The oldest of these programs, the Green-e Energy program, certifies the majority of the voluntary renewable energy market in the U.S. and over 90% of renewable energy certificate (REC) transactions. The programs together certify a wide range of options to support consumers and businesses in reducing their environmental impacts, and help drive the transition to a clean energy economy.

The organization also published a number of reports and white papers that address the voluntary green power market, best practices for RECs and renewable energy claims, solar power consumer protection, and other best practices and policy recommendations to support the continued development of robust renewable energy markets.
