Steelcase White Paper
Download our Whitepaper
Steelcase became the first corporate renewable energy buyer to sponsor an entire large-scale wind farm in the U.S. Its long-term commitment to purchase all the RECs from a single wind farm also provided Steelcase with exclusive branding and naming rights to the facility. The Wege Wind Farm generation represents 20% of Steelcase’s entire electricity demand.
Typically, developers take on additional risks and uncertainties regarding REC sales on their own. This upfront corporate commitment represents a powerful model that allows corporate renewable energy purchasers to reduce risks for developers, shorten development cycles, and do even more to get more wind power online.

Helping Support Clean Energy Development
Renewable energy credits are supporting the development of clean energy generation in this country and helping businesses make clean energy commitments when onsite generation is not a viable or feasible option.
“Without a doubt, the sponsorship rights played a vital role in that project moving forward and being constructed.”
