Today marks the 43rd annual Earth Day, celebrated by 1 billion people worldwide including individuals, businesses and governments. It’s also our favorite holiday here at Green Mountain Energy Company because we were founded with an environmental mission to change the way power is made. So today seems like the perfect time to reflect on our progress towards that mission.
This Earth Day, we’re thrilled to announce the release of our latest Sustainability Report, which shows the impressive difference our customers are helping us make for the environment.
In 2012, Green Mountain residential and commercial customers had the largest annual impact ever by avoiding 24.5 billion pounds of CO2 emissions! To put that in perspective, that’s as much as:
- 2.6 million houses turning off all of their lights for a year
- Taking 496,700 cars off the road for a year
- Planting 605,500 trees
We are extremely proud and thankful of our customers’ commitment to renewable energy and the progress we have made together. We encourage you to check out the report to learn more.
