Wind Power Graces Religious Conference

October 17, 2003 [] Demonstrating what they call an inseparable link between faith and the environment, the United Church of Christ is offsetting 100 percent of the electricity consumed during its 2003 Annual Meeting at the Saxe Middle School, in New Canaan, Connecticut October 17 to 19. Working with EAD Environmental, a New York-based marketer of renewable energy certificates and greenhouse gas certificates, the Conference estimated the amount of electricity needed to power the three-day meeting. They then purchased an equivalent number of kWh of EAD Environmental’s 100 percent New Wind RECertificates to offset the event. The RECertificates, known more broadly as Green Tags, are sourced from national wind farms, and reflect the additional cost of producing renewable energy or green power.
