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.
