National Certification for Texas Renewables

Thanks to the Texas Legislature's work last month, the national renewable energy certification body Green-e has announced they will certify Texas renewable power effective immediately. This means that individuals, congregations and other purchasers can have confidence that by purchasing Texas-generated green power, they are meaningfully reducing global warming emissions as well as emissions of nitrous oxide (NOx) and other contaminants that pollute Texas' air and contribute to asthma and other health problems.


Green-e certification is a "Good Housekeeping seal of approval" for renewable energy, similar to "Fair Trade" or "Certified Organic" labels on food products.
