RED DEER, Alberta, October 1, 2014- Bow Valley Power (www.bowvalleypower.net) announced it has entered into a contract for the sale of EcoLogo(TM) certified green power with The City of Red Deer.
Under the agreement, the City will purchase the equivalent of 11,842,000 kilowatt hours of green power to offset electricity use in 2014. This covers 25% of the City’s power requirements. With the City purchasing EcoLogo certified renewable energy, they offset 10,420 tonnes per year of CO2 emissions that would have otherwise been created with conventional Alberta power.

When buying green power, Bow Valley Power ensures that the same amount of clean and renewable energy is injected into the grid to match the amount of power your home or business consumes. This service is available to both commercial and residential customers throughout Alberta.
