The Green-e Renewable Energy Standard for Canada and the United States identifies many criteria renewable energy must meet to be certified. Electricity must come from eligible sources of supply, like wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, or low-impact hydropower. Only new renewable facilities can be used, ones built in the last 15 years. Electricity can’t be used to fulfill a state renewable energy goal, and can’t be “double counted or claimed” towards that goal. And marketing to consumers must be accurate. Green‑e Energy performs a marketing compliance review twice a year to ensure that what is promised is delivered.
