Performance Foodservice-NorthCenter delivers more than 8,200 foodservice items in Maine, New Hampshire and Boston’s North Shore to independent restaurants, schools, healthcare centers, and inns. Because of the company’s desire to promote the development and implementation of alternative form of energy, NorthCenter purchases wind-generated RECs for 100% of its electricity needs at its Augusta, Maine, warehouse. “Our quality of life in Maine is very important to us, and we want to protect that,” says Bill Bolton, VP of Sales and Marketing. “Simply put, buying green power was the right thing to do for our customers, our business, and for the environment.” Through its Web site and interactions with its customers, NorthCenter makes a concerted effort to educate the public about its green power purchase.
