GDF SUEZ Donates Energy to the New England Aquarium
New England Council member GDF SUEZ Energy Resources recently donated renewable energy certificates (RECs) to the New England Aquarium. This is the seventh consecutive year that the energy company has made such a contribution.
The RECs GDF SUEZ donated to the museum are enough to pay for 100% of the Aquarium’s annual electricity usage. They are generated by renewable sources, including solar and wind. The RECs saved the equivalent greenhouse gas emissions of 1,293 passenger vehicles, the impact of 2,201 tons of waste in a landfill, or carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to the energy use of 560 households.
“We’re proud to provide visitors of this renowned venue with a green destination year round,” said J.D. Burrows, Vice President of Marketing for GDF SUEZ. “Supporting the sustainability goals of the New England Aquarium underscores our dedication to helping our customers optimize environmental and social responsibilities, while contributing to the development of clean energy resources.”
The New England Council applauds GDF SUEZ for its environmentally responsible support of the New England Aquarium.
