Powdr Offsets 100% Of Electricity At Ski Resorts
Powdr Corp will offset 100 percent of the grid supplied electricity consumed at its seven ski and snowboard resorts and one tubing park through the purchase of renewable energy credits beginning in June 2008.
The company’s purchase of nearly 50 million kWh of RECs is the second largest among the U.S. EPA partners in the travel and leisure category. Vail is number one with 152 million kWh.
Renewable Choice Energy is providing the RECs. Renewable Choice is Vail’s partner too.
Powdr owns and operates seven ski and snowboard resorts including Park City Mountain Resort in Park City, Utah, Killington Resort and Pico Resort in Killington, Vermont, Mt. Bachelor in Bend, Oregon, Boreal Resort and Soda Springs Resort, both in Donner Summit, California, and Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. Powdr Corp also operates Gorgoza Park, a lift-served tubing park, in Park City, Utah.
