Overview

Customer Procurement Review is available to current Green-e® Energy Participants for individual transactions in which the Participant sells a Green-e® Energy certified product that meet specific criteria listed below and upon payment of the fee indicated below. 

This review addresses one of the chief concerns for Participants about the timing of the Green-e® certification process and the sales cycle, by letting Participants avoid waiting for the results for the annual Green-e® verification process before providing assurances to customers of their Green-e® Energy certified product under the individual transactions subject to this review. It is particularly well-suited for individual, high-impact sales to corporate entities.

Customer Procurement Review does not replace the annual verification process for Participants under the terms and conditions of their Green-e® Energy Certification and Logo Use Agreement. Transactions submitted to Customer Procurement Review must still be included in Participants' annual verification submission, but Participants do not need to duplicate work already done as part of Customer Procurement Review.


Transaction Criteria for Customer Procurement Review

In order to qualify for Customer Procurement Review, a transaction must:

  • consist of retired megawatt hours (“MWh”) or MWh transferred to an end user’s account in an approved tracking system;

  • certain to MWh or renewable energy certificates (“REC”) from facility (ies) with a Tracking Attestation on file with CRS

  • Involve a counterparty that is a non-residential customer;

  • transaction volume is greater than or equal to 10,000 MWh; and

  • not trigger any of the state-by-state special cases related to cap and trade programs (such as California and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative) listed in the appendices of the Green-e® Renewable Energy Standard for Canada and the United States.
