Dave Matthews Band Purchases Native Renewable Energy

Charlotte, Vermont [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Dave Matthews Band (DMB) arranged for NativeEnergy and Clean Air-Cool Planet to offset 100% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from all of its touring activities since 1991. DMB’s purchase supports additional offsets from wind farms in the Great Plains that displace electricity on one of the most intensely coal-fired grids in the country. With purchases through NativeEnergy, the band ensures that its CO2 offsetting actually contributes directly to the construction of new, Native American and Native Alaskan renewable energy generators. By offsetting an estimated 18,000 tons of CO2, the band has the same global warming impact as eliminating 36 million average car miles. DMB has worked with NativeEnergy since 2002, with investments that helped to build the Rosebud Sioux Tribe wind turbine, the first Native American-owned and operated large-scale wind turbine.
