In satisfaction of 2012 purchases, this certificate verifies that wind generated electricity in the amount of 500 MWh was produced and delivered to the electric grids of the United States and further warrants that the Renewable Electricity Attributes to the extent such attributes exist or arise from and for such wind generated electricity have been or will be permanently retired on behalf of Broudy Printing Inc.
PITTSBURGH, PA – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Pittsburgh’s Broudy Printing as an EPA Green Power Partner for its purchase of renewable energy. Every year Broudy Printing purchases more than 500,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of green power, representing 100 percent of the company’s annual purchased electricity use. Broudy Printing is purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) in the form of wind power from Community Energy, a leading national green power provider that is building the market for clean and renewable sources of energy.
By purchasing green power, Broudy Printing qualifies for EPA’s Green Power Partnership, a national voluntary program that works with organizations to purchase green power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with electricity use.
“Green power” is defined as electricity that is generated from environmentally preferable resources, such as solar, wind, geothermal, biogas, biomass, and low-impact hydro sources. Such resources generate electricity with zero anthropogenic (caused by humans) carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and have a superior environmental profile to conventional power generation. Green power purchases help support the development of new renewable energy capacity nationwide.

PITTSBURGH, PA – Broudy Printing Inc., an environmentally friendly printing and graphic communications company serving the Pittsburgh area, has entered an agreement with Community Energy to purchase wind energy and ‘green up’ 100% of its conventional electricity consumption with this clean, renewable energy.
Purchased as Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), the wind energy is certified by the Center for Resource Solutions’ Green-e renewable energy certification program. These RECs indirectly offset 355,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions from conventional electricity production processes that use nonrenewable fuel sources. The environmental benefit compares to not driving 387,511 miles in an automobile (139 drives between Los Angeles and New York), or planting 48 acres of trees.
PITTSBURGH, PA – Broudy Printing Inc., an environmentally friendly printing and graphic communications company serving the Pittsburgh area, has taken another step towards protecting the environment.
