Green Mountain Energy Announces Sustainability Partnership with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is getting even greener with the help of Green Mountain Energy.

We’re partnering with the Department to deliver 100 percent renewable energy to all of the Texas Parks and Wildlife facilities in deregulated service areas. Using innovative and cost-effective solar and smart meter solutions, we’re helping support the Department’s mission to manage and conserve the state’s natural and cultural resources for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.

“We welcome mutually beneficial partnerships between Green Mountain and other organizations committed to working together to explore best practices in solar energy, energy efficiency, water conservation and more,” said Mark McShane, vice president, Green Mountain Energy. “This agreement with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will build upon the Department’s existing commitment to learning and leadership in the efficient and sustainable use of resources and will be a model for others to follow.”

As a sustainable business partner, Texas Parks and Wildlife also qualifies to receive a financial incentive through Green Mountain’s SolarSPARC™ program, to fund the installation of a new solar array. The array will be located at the Sea Center Texas marine aquarium, fish hatchery and nature center in Lake Jackson, Texas.

“As a recognized sustainability leader in the great state of Texas, we are constantly looking at smarter and more effective means of resource conservation,” said Andee Chamberlain, sustainability programs manager, Texas Parks and Wildlife. “This partnership with Green Mountain Energy will allow us to develop new and innovative sustainability practices and to share those learnings with others in the state and country.”

SolarSPARC is an exclusive Green Mountain program, funded by Green Mountain on behalf of the Company’s residential SolarSPARC customers, to improve the affordability, efficacy and availability of solar energy in Texas for sustainable business partners and commercial customers.
