Kinko’s Goes Green in Idaho

Continuing a trend toward using Renewable Energy for their stores, Kinko’s Inc. has switched three of their Idaho locations to Renewable Energy electricity purchases. The contract involves the Kinko’s Boise and Pocatello branches and Idaho Power Company.

Pocatello, Idaho – May 30, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] The new agreement is expected to result in Kinko’s purchasing more than 185,000 kWh of Renewable Energy each year. The reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions resulting from this purchase is equivalent to taking three vehicles off the road. “Reducing our impact on the environment is one of Kinko’s core values, and our expanded relationship with Idaho Power Company helps us fulfill this goal,” said Glenda Bradshaw, district manager for Kinko’s. “Our ongoing commitment to using Renewable Energy, which began in 1999, not only delivers sustainability to the environment, but also helps us meet the high standards of our customers.” Kinko’s first began purchasing green power in Idaho at the company’s Coeur d’Alene and Moscow locations in 2002. Nationwide, Kinko’s purchases Renewable Energy at more than 210 branches in 13 states for an estimated 13.9 million kWh per year. “Our green power partnership with Kinko’s reflects an important responsibility and commitment we have to the environment,” said Theresa Drake, Idaho Power’s Green Power Program manager. “We are proud to support Kinko’s environmentally-conscious team through the Green Power Program and are also proud to provide Renewable Energy opportunities to all Idaho Power customers.”
