Detailed Information:
Every time you turn on your lights, resources are used to create your electricity. There are huge differences between the types of resources used to meet our country's electricity needs. 98% of electricity produced in the United States comes from traditional (non-renewable) resources such as polluting fossil fuels and nuclear power. These non-renewable sources of electricity are the number one cause of industrial air pollution in the U.S. The remaining 2% is generated from renewable resources, such as wind, solar, geothermal, small hydro and biomass, that cause dramatically less air pollution and environmental damage.

Green-e is a voluntary certification program for renewable energy products. The Green-e Program sets consumer protection and environmental standards for energy products, and verifies that Green-e certified products meet these standards. Energy products that meet the Green-e Standard for environmental excellence are denoted by the Green-e logo. Please visit the the Green-e website to learn how to choose renewable energy and see certified options in your state.
