Real estate developer Hillwood has signed a 100% renewable energy contract for its properties in north Texas and has received the Environmental Protection Agency's status as a Green Power Partner. Current Energy, a Dallas-based company providing energy efficiency products and services for commercial and residential customers, has negotiated the renewable energy contract with TXU Energy on behalf of Hillwood.
‘This deal is part of Hillwood's ongoing effort to be environmentally progressive in our developments and offices, not only in north Texas but across the country,’ says Ross Perot Jr., chairman of Hillwood. ‘Current Energy has been a tremendous asset in assessing Hillwood's needs and in securing the best possible partner in TXU Energy to provide renewable sources for our developments in north Texas.’
Hillwood's 2008 renewable power contract is projected at 65 million kWh. Under this contract, TXU Energy will secure certified renewable resources from wind, solar, hydro, biomass and/or landfills.
