Vail Resorts: 100% Powered by Wind

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Vail Resorts has chosen to offset 100 percent of its energy use by purchasing nearly 152,000 megawatt-hours of wind energy annually for its five mountain resorts, its lodging properties including RockResorts and Grand Teton Lodge Company, all of its 125 retail locations (operated through Specialty Sports Venture) and its new corporate headquarters in Broomfield, Colorado. By purchasing renewable energy credits equal to the company’s entire electricity use, Vail Resorts said it is now the second largest purchaser of wind power of all corporations in the United States. Vail also partnered with Boulder-based Renewable Choice Energy to offer a special “Ski With The Wind” promotion. When you sign up through Renewable Choice for wind power in your home, apartment or dorm room for one year, families receive a free one-day ski lift ticket during the 2006-2007 winter season.
