Gusts of energy from Pepco Energy Services are securing an environmentally-conscious energy commitment for Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington D.C. The Willard has awarded Pepco a contract to provide the hotel with 100% wind renewable energy credits.
The one-year contract which began in June calls for Pepco Energy Services to provide the 332-room Willard InterContinental Washington nearly 7.1 million kilowatt hours of 100% wind renewable energy certificates.
Under this contract, Pepco Energy Services will provide renewable energy certificates from Sterling Planet. Electricity produced from renewable resources reduces the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2), a key greenhouse gas. Wind energy is particularly effective in reducing greenhouse gases, because there are no air emissions associated with operating wind generators.
