Green-e TRCs

The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) has fulfilled its promise to identify green energy providers who meet CRS Green-e environmental and consumer protection standards. Following their March 2002 establishment of

Green-e tradable renewable certificates (TRCs) for qualifying wind, solar electric, geothermal, biomass, and low-impact hydropower energy providers (see


Vol. 11, No. 5), CRS has announced the first certified suppliers: Community Energy, Sterling Planet, Bonneville Environmental Foundation, and Renewable Choice Energy (available nationwide); Aquila (for commercial and industrial consumers nationwide and internationally); and Sun Power Electric (available throughout New England). For more information on Green-e and TRCs, as well as links to the six certified providers, visit online at
