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, NAR, NEPOOL-GIS, NC-RETS, NYGATS, 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). 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 renewable energy from the facility for their Green‑e® Energy Certified products. Acceptance by CRS of a completed Tracking Attestation does not mean that the facility, facility owner, facility's output, or sale of facility's output is Green‑e® Energy Certified. Only entities that maintain certification contracts with CRS are able to make Green-e® Energy Certified sales of products subject to such certification.
The maximum period covered by this Attestation is three years (the "Term"), 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. 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) has output used in Green‑e® Energy Certified products. If facility information or characteristics change, CRS requires submission of an updated Attestation. The party completing and signing the Attestation must notify CRS 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 likely to fail to meet the criteria set forth under the most current version of the ® Renewable Energy Standard for Canada and the United States
This Attestation is not a contract permitting the declarant to make sales of products designated as Green-e® Energy Certified. In addition, nothing in this Attestation or its acceptance by CRS grants the declarant any rights to use CRS's marks, including (without limitation) the Green-e® logo or "Green-e" word mark. By submitting this Attestation, the declaration expressly agrees that it will not represent any renewable energy covered by this Attestation as "eligible" or "certifiable" or similar under CRS's Green-e® certification programs, which is strictly prohibited by CRS and may violate CRS's intellectual property and other rights.
CRS reserves the right to terminate a facility's Attestation at any time in CRS's sole discretion. At this time, there are no fees due to CRS to submit this Attestation.
Please read through and complete this Attestation form and submit it to CRS. CRS reserves the right to reject the Attestation if any field or box is not filled in correctly.

Wherever used in this Attestation and whether or not accompanied by a ® or other symbol reflecting ownership interests, "Green-e" means the mark, whether registered or not, containing the word "Green-e," to which CRS asserts ownership rights.
