|Major Food Distributor Adds Wind Power to its Menu|
Rhee Bros. Inc. Purchases 100% Wind Power for its Hanover, MD Headquarters
Rhee Bros., sells its food products to retail and foodservice clients throughout the U.S. and over 30 countries. By purchasing 100% wind power through Clean Currents, the electricity consumption of Rhee Bros. Inc.’s headquarters is now carbon neutral.
“We applaud the sustainability initiative of Rhee. Bros. in taking a decisive step to green its electric operations. We hope that their leadership will make it clear to other regional companies and organizations that greening electric supply is not only simple but can also result in savings over the long-run through negotiated fixed electricity rates,” said Ron Rodriguez, Vice President of Business Development at Clean Currents.
Rhee Bros. Inc.’s wind power purchase of nearly four million kilowatt-hours (KWh) of electricity is equivalent to removing almost six million pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the atmosphere or removing 320 single-family homes from the electric grid.
“Rhee Bros is proud to partner with Clean Currents and to help them achieve their goal of improving our natural environment and battling climate change,” said Robin Rhee, Director of Rhee Bros., Inc.
I'm like many mothers I know, concerned about the planet our kids will inherit and overwhelmed by daily life. Clean Currents made it simple and affordable to switch to 100% wind power, without breaking my back or the bank.
