Green Power Certificate
28 Jun, 2009 | Written by Anupa Mueller
We opted for Green Power last year at the Tea Room. It came from a combination of wind and low-impact hydro energy. Last week, we received an official looking certificate from the electric company that informed us we had purchased 14,376 kWh in 2008. Not bad! This is clean, emission-free electricity and in our case it includes the wind farms of Fenner, Madison, Maple Ridge, Noble Bliss, Noble Clinton, Noble Ellenburg, Steel Winds and Wethersfield Wind farms. (Don't you love the names!) Small-hydro generation facilities include the High Falls, New York State Dam, Sissonville, and Walden Hydro Projects.
