Six Green Tag Providers Earn Green-e Certification

Is green power not available in your area? Feeling left out? Well, cheer up: the Center for Resource Solutions has just awarded its "Green-e" certification to six providers of "green tags," also known as tradable renewable credits. Buying a green tag allows you to increase the production of electricity from renewable energy, thereby offsetting the emissions caused by your own energy use. Of the six Green-e-certified products, five are available nationwide and one is available only in the Northeast. See the Green-e press release.

For more information about Green-e certification of tradable renewable credits, see the April 10th edition of EREN Network News.
