“EPA’s Green Power Partners are tapping into America’s growing clean energy market and powering the economy of the future,” says EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson. “Investments like these are smart for business, foster growth in the green energy sector and help protect our health through cleaner air.”
“Mohawk Fine Papers is proud to have been an early supporter of windpower development, a steadily increasing source of clean renewable energy,” says George Milner, Senior Vice President, Energy, Environmental and Government Affairs, Mohawk Fine Papers.
EPA’s Green Power Partnership works with more than 1,300 partner organizations to voluntarily purchase green power, reducing the environmental impacts of conventional electricity use. Overall, EPA’s Green Power Partners are using more than 19.2 billion kWh (kilowatt-hours) of green power annually, equivalent to the CO2 emissions from electricity use of more than 1.7 million average American homes.
Mohawk has been named Green Power Partner of the Year in 2007 and again in 2009, and received the EPA’s Green Power Leadership Award in 2005. Mohawk’s current annual purchase of 116 million kWh of wind renewable energy certificates (RECs) is enough green power to meet 113% of Mohawk’s 2010 electricity use. Mohawk purchases RECs from 3Degrees, Sterling Planet, NextEra Energy Resources and Community Energy.
