The Plaza Suites is currently a member of The Green Power Partnership. This partnership allows organizations to buy green power as a way to lessen the environmental impacts associated with conventional electricity use. Conventional electricity use can be one of the most significant environmental impacts associated with an organization’s operations.
The Plaza Suites is lessening its environmental impact through a green power purchase. Green power is electricity generated from environmentally preferable renewable resources, such as solar, wind, geothermal, low-impact biomass, and low-impact hydro resources.
A green power purchase is one of the easiest ways for an organization to reduce its carbon footprint. Supporting domestic energy supply, a green power purchase helps to accelerate the development of new, domestic renewable energy sources, while playing an important role in the security of America’s energy supply.
