BOULDER, CO (PRWEB) October 14, 2014
Colorado-based Renewable Choice Energy will join other leading exhibitors at this year’s annual Greenbuild conference later this month in New Orleans. Since 2003, the firm has supplied more than 5,000 green building projects in more than 22 countries with Green-e® Energy certified renewable energy credits (RECs) and Green-e Climate certified emission reductions.
The LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in 1998 and to date, has certified more than 2.8 billion square feet. The building standard awards points to green construction projects that result in LEED certification. Under USBGC guidelines, a project can receive points under the Energy & Atmosphere Green Power Credit for the purchase of RECs and emission reductions that are Green-e certified.
“We’ve worked with Renewable Choice on dozens of LEED projects for green power,” said Barry Giles, Founder and CEO of BuildingWise, LLC. “They are always knowledgeable and responsive to our needs while offering the best green power value in the market.”
The Green Power Credit allows projects to support renewable energy development by choosing RECs and emission reductions, offering affordable points toward LEED certification that significantly reduce a project’s environmental impact. Since 2003, Renewable Choice has been a member of the USGBC and has been supplying green power to building projects around the world.
“We’re excited to once again join the exhibitors at Greenbuild 2014,” said Lana Carmichael, Director of Green Building at Renewable Choice. “The opportunity to serve the green building industry has been a key part of our organization’s success, and we look forward to our continued partnership with the LEED community.”
Attendees are invited to visit the Renewable Choice booth at the conference, held this year in New Orleans, October 22-24.
