Green Power Partnership Documents
The Partnership Requirements document provides detailed information about the Green Power Partnership's program requirements, including organization, resource, and product eligibility; minimum purchase requirements; new renewables requirements; vintage requirements; participation definitions; and reporting requirements.
The Partnership Agreement is available in both MS Excel (xlsx) and PDF (pdf) formats. Organizations must complete the Agreement and either email or fax it to EPA to join the Partnership. Partners need to provide company information—including a primary and communications contact information—as well as basic information about their green power use.
The Green Power Data Report is a form that Partners can use to update their green power usage information. Partners will receive a Green Power Data Report from their assigned account manager on their partnership's anniversary or the anniversary date of their last purchase data update, whichever is most recent. The report will include the purchase information on record—Partners need only confirm or update the information.
The Partner Mark Use Guidelines outline how Green Power Partners should use the Partner mark in promoting their Partnership with EPA. (In all cases, please notify EPA when using the Partner mark.)
The Green Power Partnership Overview is a one-page document that provides a brief overview of the Green Power Partnership. It includes information about how to join the Partnership, benefits available to Partners, and examples of how to promote your organization's green power leadership.
Green Power Partner Certificate
Once an organization signs on as a Partner, that organization receives via email a welcome kit with program information and a certificate acknowledging its green power commitment. If you are already a Partner, contact us for an additional copy of your certificate.
Green Power Leadership Awards application (seasonally available)
EPA's Green Power Leadership Awards recognize exceptional achievement and leading actions of EPA Green Power Partners. Winners of Green Power Leadership Awards demonstrate actions and behaviors in green power use that accelerate the transition to a clean energy future. EPA seeks to recognize applicant behaviors and actions that accelerate the transition to a clean energy future, follow best practices and market principles, and provide social proof to others.
The Green Power Community Partnership Agreement is the application form that a community's authorized official must complete and email to EPA to join the Partnership. Community Partners need to provide contact information, as well as information on community-wide electricity use and collective voluntary green power use.

The municipal government must meet all requirements outlined in the standard Partnership Agreement (pdf) and submit the Agreement to EPA.
