For businesses and households switching to renewable energy, the options can be confusing. Green-e® Energy certification helps buyers feel confident in the environmental benefits of their purchases and provides an important point of differentiation for sellers in a crowded marketplace.

DTE Energy discussed offering a certified product as a regulated utility in Michigan, and Green Mountain Energy discussed its residential solar product in the Texas competitive electricity market.

Topics discussed will include:

  • Why they chose to offer Green-e® certified renewable energy products
  • The basics of renewable energy program design
  • The growing demand for renewable energy products
  • Benefits seen from offering a third-party certified product, including differentiation, risk reduction and positive brand recognition
