Clean Currents Has Most Customers on EPA’s Green Power Partnership List
(SILVER SPRING, Md, July 31, 2013) — Clean Currents announced today that it tops the EPA Green Power Partnership List, with more customers on the list than any other supplier. This is the first time the Maryland-based renewable energy supplier sits atop this national list. There are 263 Clean Currents powered businesses, schools, and organizations in the EPA program.
“This recognition goes straight to the heart of our mission — to energize communities for a clean energy future by enabling individuals and businesses to make responsible choices that protect their bottom line while reducing their environmental impact,” said Gary Skulnik, Clean Currents President. “It’s an honor for us and our community of customers to be recognized by the EPA for our efforts.”
Since opening in 2005, Clean Currents has supplied wind power to over 3,000 businesses and 12,000 residents in Maryland, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania. By choosing renewable energy, businesses and organizations reduce their carbon footprint and support the development of new renewable resources locally and nationally.
“The Green Power Partnership appreciates the efforts of renewable energy providers like Clean Currents, whose outreach to businesses, organizations, and communities is helping to accelerate the development of new renewable energy capacity nationwide and reduce the carbon footprints of households and businesses across the country,” said Blaine Collison, Director of EPA’s Green Power Partnership.
Through the Green Power Partnership, over 1,400 businesses, organizations and government entities are purchasing more than 27 billion kilowatt hours of renewable electricity annually. Collectively, this purchase offsets the equivalent electricity use of 2.8 million homes in the United States.
