Green Mountain Energy honored by the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce

We take pride in providing renewable energy to homes and businesses around the country. It’s also essential to us that we walk the talk by emphasizing sustainability in our day-to-day business operations.

That’s why we are so honored to receive the Intel Environmental Responsibility & Sustainability Award in the large business category from the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce. We accepted the award last night at the 2014 Greater Austin Business Awards after being selected from a distinguished group of finalists in our category, including AMDHID GlobalRackspace and TG.

The award recognized Green Mountain for a few of our recent sustainability achievements: the September 2013 launch of SolarSPARC, the first and only 100 percent solar electricity plan for residential customers in Texas; our Austin headquarters’ LEED ® Platinum certification in November 2013, and our company’s and employees’ overall environmental impact over the past 17 years.

The Greater Austin Business Awards is an annual competition and the largest business event in Central Texas. We also were a finalist in the sustainability category in 2012, and in 2011 we won the Greater Austin Business Award for large companies in the Environmental Category.

We feel fortunate to have been recognized for the second time this month. On August 15, we received “Highest in Customer Satisfaction for Residential Retail Electric Providers in Texas” from J.D. Power.

We sincerely thank our customers for supporting us in our mission to change the way power is made!
