The City of Red Deer, Alberta, has entered into a contract with electricity retailer Bow Valley Power to buy renewable energy credits (RECs).
Under the agreement, Red Deer will purchase the equivalent of 11,842,000 kWh of green power to offset electricity use this year. This covers 25% of the City's power requirements. The EcoLogo-certified RECs are produced from renewable sources such as biomass, wind, solar and hydro.
‘We are proud to provide the City of Red Deer with green power. A commitment to buying green power speaks volumes about their dedication to sustainability and their commitment to the future,’ says Charlie Bredo, president of Bow Valley Power.
