Green-e® Energy Tracking Attestation Form
for generators participating in a tracking system
This Green-e® Energy Tracking Attestation Form is required for generating facilities registered with a renewable energy tracking system in the United States or Canada (ERCOT, M-RETS, MIRECS, NARR, NEPOOL-GIS, NC-RETS, PJM-GATS and WREGIS), that either (a) wish to be identified (including within that tracking system) as producing renewable energy that may be used in a Green-e® Energy Certified product or (b) whose renewable energy is claimed to be within the supply chain of a product that is subject to an annual sales and supply audit for Green-e® Energy certification.
Green-e® Energy is a voluntary program that certifies renewable energy products meeting criteria developed by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions (CRS). Acceptance by CRS of a completed Tracking Attestation indicates that the facility identified in the attestation meets the eligibility criteria of the Green-e Energy Standard for the United States and Canada. This does not mean that the facility, facility owner, facility’s output, or sale of facility’s output is Green‑e Energy Certified. It simply means that the facility’s output may be used by certain renewable energy sellers to more easily make sales of Green-e Energy Certified products. Only sellers that maintain certification contracts with CRS are able to make such sales. If the Tracking Attestation is accepted by CRS, basic facility information will appear on the Green‑e Energy website so potential buyers may consider purchasing your renewable energy for their Green‑e Energy Certified products. Sales to participants in the Green-e Energy certification program will be subject to review as part of the Green‑e Energy verification process.
The maximum period covered by this form is three years, although the owner of the generating facility or the entity to which facility registration rights have been assigned may indicate a more limited period in the attestation form. In addition, the Tracking Attestation will remain in effect only so long as the facility: (a) is actively registered in a tracking system, (b) remains in compliance with all of that tracking system’s rules, and (c) the facility’s output is used in Green‑e Energy Certified products. If facility information or characteristics change, Green‑e Energy requires submission of an updated attestation. The party completing and signing the attestation must notify Green‑e Energy staff immediately in writing if any of the following occurs: the facility ceases to be registered in the tracking system for any reason, violates tracking system rules, or is ineligible under the most current version of the Green-e Energy Standard for the United States and Canada.
This attestation is not a contract to make Green-e Energy Certified sales. CRS reserves the right to remove the Green‑e® Energy eligibility designation from a facility at any time at its sole discretion. At this time, there are no fees due to Green‑e Energy or CRS associated with the signing this form.
Please read through and complete this attestation form and submit it to Green‑e Energy. Green‑e Energy reserves the right to reject the attestation if any field or box is not filled in correctly.
