Discovery Green, Houston’s 12-acre park, continues to serve as an urban role model in sustainability by choosing renewable energy from Green Mountain Energy Company. Discovery Green renewed their agreement with Green Mountain, the nation’s leading competitive retail provider of cleaner energy, to purchase electricity generated from 100 percent wind energy to power all of the park’s electricity needs, including concerts, events, lighting and operations. Green Mountain will also be the presenting sponsor for Discovery Green’s Thursday Concert series, taking place September 13 – October 25, 2012.

“Discovery Green was developed with a commitment to high environmental standards and operational efficiency – it is part of our core values,” said Barry Mandel, President and Park Director of Discovery Green Conservancy. “Our partnership with Green Mountain, who has been our renewable energy supplier since the park’s inception in 2008, helps us achieve our commitment to environmental sustainability.”

Environmental impact from choosing renewable energy:

• Since becoming a Green Mountain customer in 2008, Discovery Green has avoided 10.3 million pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions through its use of renewable energy. That’s the same amount of CO2 absorbed annually by trees covering an area 80 times the size of Discovery Green
• Over the next two years, by purchasing over 4.3 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of wind energy from Green Mountain, Discovery Green will avoid an additional 4.8 million pounds of CO₂ .

In addition, approximately 9 percent of the park’s power is generated by solar panels located on the roofs of the Alkek Building and The Lake House Café.

“In name and vision, Discovery Green brings a commitment to green living and sustainable operations,” said Scott Hart, President of Commercial Services, Green Mountain Energy Company. “Since day one, Discovery Green has been powered by renewable energy from Green Mountain and we’re proud to serve as the park’s Official Green Energy Provider.”

From the earliest stages of planning, Discovery Green has been designed to use the latest technology in green building methods, energy conservation, and sustainable park operations. Discovery Green has earned a Gold rating from the LEED Green Building Rating System, which is the national benchmark for the design, construction, and operations of high-performance green buildings.

Infinity Power Partners, a Houston based energy management and consulting firm, assisted Discovery Green in structuring, facilitating, and executing the sponsorship and commercial electricity contracts with Green Mountain.

“Selecting Green Mountain as a sponsor and exclusive electricity provider to Discovery Green seemed to be a perfect fit from the start,” said Peter Selber, Managing Partner of Infinity Power Partners. “This exciting partnership bodes well for both organizations given their joint commitment to the environment and the sustainability of the greater Houston community.”
