Bridgton, Maine [] With Maine-based Shawnee Peak’s decision to power its entire operation with a purchase of 100 percent wind power renewable energy certificates (RECs), the ski area qualifies as an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Green Power Leader. The clean energy choice will offset the electricity consumption of its lifts, snowmaking equipment, lights, lodges and administrative offices with zero-emission wind power, or 2.2 million pounds of carbon dioxide. The new agreement was made with wind energy marketer and developer, Community Energy, Inc.
