McDonalds Goes Green with Wind Power

Calgary, Canada – August 18, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] Electricity used to keep 33 McDonald’s restaurants in Canada running is going to come from green tags purchased from ENMAX Energy. The restaurants are owned by Max Pasley, and located in Calgary, Red Deer and Lethbridge. Under the agreement, one quarter of the electricity needs will be supplied from wind farms in southern Alberta, including the McBride Lake wind power project. The restaurants will purchase 25 percent, almost 4,065 MWh annually, of their total electricity supply from the Greenmax program. That much power is equivalent to reducing 4,065 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. This is the same amount of CO2 that would be reduced by more than 440,000 fully-grown trees per year.
