Madison, Wis.-based CDW Corp., a provider of technology products and services to business, government and education, has contracted with Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) to purchase almost 12 million kWh of renewable energy annually as part of a corporate initiative to reduce its carbon footprint.
The company's two enterprise hosting centers, totaling 10,500 square feet, will now receive power generated from wind farms in the Midwest region – two in Wisconsin and one in Iowa – with a small amount from solar electric systems in the Madison area.
‘Madison Gas and Electric recognizes our responsibility to promote renewable energy,’ says Cathy Mackin, sales service director at MGE. ‘CDW's decision to use 100 percent renewable energy is significant. Their 100 percent purchase is the largest in our program.’
