Shopping Made Better With Green Power

Shoppers won’t see the turbines, but six shopping malls and two professional offices owned by Ivanhoe Cambridge will benefit from power produced at the McBride Lake wind farm in Alberta. The real estate company signed a five-year contract with Enmax Energy to buy one quarter of the properties’ electricity needs from wind-generated electricity through the utility’s Greenmax program.

Calgary, Alberta – July 29, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] “We’re pleased to supply these facilities with Alberta wind power,” said Sean Durfy, president and chief operating officer of Enmax Energy Corporation. “This reinforces our commitment to renewable power and shows that all types of industry are showing leadership in purchasing green power.” Power supplied from the wind farm should total 23,700 MWh annually, which would be the equivalent of reducing 23,700 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from a power plant that relies on fossil fuels. This is the same amount of CO2 reduced by more than 2.5 million fully-grown trees per year. The participating Ivanhoe Cambridge properties are St. Albert Center, Southgate Centre, and Mill Woods Town Center and Professional Offices; the Southcenter Mall and Executive Tower; Sunridge Mall, and Deerfoot Outlet Mall.
