Yesterday, I had the honor of visiting the New York Stock Exchange to ring The Closing Bell® in celebration of our recent partnership with NYSE Euronext. As the world’s largest global exchange operator, NYSE Euronext doesn’t make trade-offs when it comes to renewable energy. Green Mountain will provide 100 percent wind energy to cover NYSE Euronext’s 2011 electricity usage – everything from the trading floor to operational needs. You can read more about that commitment in our press release.
To me, the sound of the bell not only signified the end of the day’s trading, but it also represented how far Green Mountain has come over the past 15 years, and how more companies are making strong commitments to clean energy.
Our team will never forget the experience of being a part of such a legendary tradition, and we are more than thrilled to have such a global icon on board. Take a look at the photos and video from the event and stay tuned for a great year ahead as we continue to strive to change the way power is made.
