Aqua America, Inc. (NYSE: WTR) is now using nearly 13 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, which is enough green power to meet 4% of the organization’s electricity use and qualify it as a Green Power Partner.
Aqua America is buying Green-e Energy Certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) from Constellation, a competitive energy supplier, offering electricity, natural gas, solar, and renewable energy products and services to homes and businesses across the U.S. and Canada. Aqua America’s green power purchase demonstrates a proactive choice to support cleaner renewable energy alternatives. The company’s green power purchases are primarily of wind energy.
"This is a great honor and we are proud to be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency," said Aqua America Chairman and CEO Nicholas DeBenedictis. "Our green power purchase is another step in our sustainability efforts. It helps affirm for other businesses across the U.S. that supporting clean sources of electricity is a sound business decision and an important choice in reducing climate risk."
