HOUSTON, March 19, 2019 — ENGIE Resources and the National Constitution Center have reached a six-year agreement for retail electricity supply that includes Green-e® certified Renewable Energy Credits (RECs). Advisory services were provided by Industrial Energy Inc.
The RECs on behalf of the agreement equate to the displacement of more than 27 million pounds of coal burned, or the greenhouse gas emissions of 5,400 passenger cars. Green-e® RECs are administered by the Center for Resource Solutions and help build a market for renewable electricity.
“As museums become high-tech entertainment and educational centers, the energy profile of the segment has changed,” said Brad McIntyre, Business Development Director of the National Constitution Center. “Today, the energy use profile of museums is often well above other buildings, and there is an opportunity for energy partners like ENGIE to deliver sophisticated supply solutions, efficiency projects, and project finance.”
“The National Constitution Center is a national treasure,” said Graham Leith, Senior Vice President, Head of Retail, ENGIE Resources. “It’s an honor to serve a museum that not only inspires citizenship but also demonstrates it by supporting clean, renewable energy.”
