Washington, D.C.-based Renewable Power Direct LLC (RDP) is bringing wind power to the global headquarters of business and financial software company Intuit Inc. in Mountain View, Calif.
The new transaction provides locally produced power from Leeward Energy’s Buena Vista Wind Farm, located in Byron, Calif. The 38 MW facility is located within 60 miles of Intuit’s headquarters.
The power will be supplied by the PG&E distribution system, but each megawatt-hour consumed by Intuit will be supported by physical renewable wind power from Buena Vista and the associated concurrent renewable energy credits.
Just Energy and its Commerce Energy subsidiary will provide wholesale and retail services to Intuit under an eight-year agreement.
Intuit has expanded its commitment to clean energy and is moving toward 100% renewables for its Mountain View base.
“This transaction with Leeward Energy, Just Energy and Renewable Power Direct is the perfect complement to our on-site solar projects and completes the process of making our Mountain View headquarters a showcase for our commitment to renewable energy,” comments Sean Kinghorn, Intuit’s senior sustainability program manager.
