|Leading institutions in the academic and government arenas are realizing the substantial benefits of going green. While going green is commonly acknowledged as demonstrating social responsibility and leadership, it is less widely known that it may actually create direct financial profit as well. Purchasing renewable energy today is not just the right thing to do - it’s fiscally responsible.
Geronimo’s Virtual Wind PPA is an easy, affordable way to meet your climate goals and make a large, visible statement of sustainability. By siting a wind farm in an efficient location off-site, a Virtual Wind PPA offers institutions the opportunity to make large-scale sustainability gains with no capital investment and little risk.
Geronimo is a proud sponsor of the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), which calls on educational leaders to recognize the threat of global warming and take action against it.
“…if a developer builds a grid-connected renewable energy project with the intent of generating offsets, and demonstrates it is additional, it results in a measurable reduction in GHG emissions that will not be double-counted, and it meets the rest of the criteria laid out in the protocol, a renewable energy project could generate offsets.”
