For Immediate Release-
EPA Recognizes KnownHost for Industry Leading Green Power Use Campaign
KnownHost, LLC announced today that they recently joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership. KnownHost is using about 1,600,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, which is enough green power to meet more than 100 percent of the KnownHost’s electricity use. This green power comes from wind generation. By using wind power and setting this goal, KnownHost is helping advance the voluntary market for green power and development of those sources.
“This is a huge honor and we are proud to be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,” said Daniel Pearson, COO. “Using green power helps our community lower its emissions footprint, while also sending a message to others across the country that green power is an affordable, accessible choice.”
By moving the needle in the voluntary green power market, KnownHost and other Green Power Partners are helping to reduce the negative health impacts of air emissions including those related to ozone, fine particles, acid rain, and regional haze. Together, Green Power Partners are collectively using more green power annually than the electricity consumed by Montana and Utah combined.
According to the U.S. EPA, KnownHost’s green power use of 1,600,000 kWh is equivalent to the electricity use of more than 100 average American homes annually.
