This confirms that a customer on such a product is using electricity sourced entirely from renewable generation.
A Guarantee of Origin (GO) or Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) certificate certifies that electricity generated is from renewable energy sources. GOs and REGOs are traded at a European level. Suppliers can purchase GOs to use as proof of the share or quantity of energy from renewable sources.
