Arcadia Power Wind Energy Certified by Green-e Energy
Arcadia Power's new 100% Wind Energy renewable energy product for residential and commercial customers independently certified by Green-e Energy
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (August 3, 2015)—Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) announced today that Arcadia Power's new Wind Energy renewable energy product for its residential and commercial customers is now certified by Green-e Energy, North America's leading independent certification program for renewable energy sold on the retail market.
Based in Washington, D.C., Arcadia Power offers its Wind Energy customers renewable energy certificates (RECs) sourced from wind energy facilities located across the U.S. By offering RECs from wind facilities, Arcadia Power customers have the ability to reduce the environmental impact of their electricity use while helping provide wind facilities an additional income stream, stimulating growth in the U.S. renewable energy.
"By offering its residential and business customers access to renewable energy generated across the U.S., Arcadia Power is helping build the market for renewable energy while giving its customers the option to green their power with Green-e certified renewable energy," said CRS Communications Director Jeff Swenerton.
Ryan Nesbitt, co-founder and President of Arcadia Power said, "We're excited to be working with CRS and Green-e to ensure that our customers are getting 100% certified Wind Energy as part of our mission to change the way America consumes energy."
Green-e Energy is the leading renewable energy certification and verification program in North America. In 2013 nearly 717,000 total retail customers—including 69,000 businesses—purchased 33.5 million megawatt-hours, enough to power over a quarter of U.S. households for a month. The program provides independent, third-party certification to ensure that certified renewable energy meets strict environmental and consumer-protection standards, and is the only program of its kind in the U.S.
Providers of Green-e Energy certified renewable energy agree to abide by the Green-e Energy Code of Conduct, and meet strict disclosure and truth-in-advertising requirements. All participants in Green-e Energy undergo an annual third-party verification audit to document that the company purchased or generated enough quantity and type of renewable energy to meet customer demand and marketing claims.
