Sony Makes 'Green Power'
TWICE Staff -- TWICE, 2/4/2011
New York - Sony Corporation of America said Friday that its various U.S. operations will collectively purchase
more than 143 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power in 2011, which was
said to be enough to meet 49 percent of its annual electricity needs.
The steps moved Sony up to No. 27 on the U.S. Environmental Protection agency's (EPA's) national top 50 list of green power purchasers.
Sony said it is purchasing Green-e verified renewable energy certificates (RECs) through Renewable Choice Energy and 3Degrees.
The company is also using its own on-site solar installations, which produce more than 600,000 kWh/year.
"These activities demonstrate a proactive choice to switch away from traditional sources of electricity generation and support cleaner renewable-energy alternatives," Sony said.
