XENERGY Inc., has committed to support Renewable Energy for all 25 of its offices nationwide by purchasing green tags for 50 percent of its annual energy use. By exceeding the basic commitment level by more than a factor of four, XENERGY joins the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership’s Leadership Club, reserved for companies making exceptional commitments to Renewable Energy.Burlington, Massachusetts – September 16, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] On September 1, 2002, XENERGY, a national energy consulting firm, began purchasing green tags through three organizations, Bonneville Environmental Foundation, Native Energy and Sterling Planet. Green tags capture the value of the environmental attributes associated with the generation of electricity from renewable resources. XENERGY’s green tags are generated by new wind plants and solar plants. “As we’ve advised both the buyers and sellers of green power, the market is open for nationwide green power sales,” said Julie Blunden, XENERGY vice president and leader of XENERGY’s Green Team. “We are particularly proud of the fact that we are directly supporting solar plants through a 5 percent solar tag purchase.” XENERGY’s solar tags were procured from solar plants designed and installed by PowerLight Corporation. EPA’s Green Power Partnership is a new voluntary program that seeks to reduce the environmental impact of electricity generation by fostering the development of green power – a cleaner, renewable and reliable alternative to conventional electricity generation. The Partnership provides technical assistance and public recognition to organizations that commit to using green power for a portion of their electricity needs.
