Discovery Green commits to eight years of powering the downtown Houston park and facilities with renewable energy from Green Mountain Energy Company with the announcement of its contract renewal through 2016. Discovery Green first teamed up with Green Mountain in 2008, in part to support the park’s environmental stewardship which now also includes extensive recycling options for visitors and new buildings aligned with LEED® green building standards. The park has been powered with 100% wind energy since 2012. Green Mountain is also the presenting sponsor for the park’s Sounds Like Houston! Thursday Concerts, taking place weekly September 25 through October 23, 2014.

“We like to think of the park as an oasis amidst the bustling city of Houston, and choosing 100% wind energy from Green Mountain plays a large role in helping us maintain our mission,” said Barry Mandel, President of Discovery Green. “Renewable energy is just one piece of the puzzle of environmental sustainability that is expanding our efforts to go green.”

By choosing renewable energy over traditional fossil fuel generation for the next two years, Discovery Green is estimated to avoid an additional 6.2 million pounds of carbon dioxide. That’s like planting 745 trees, enough to cover the 12 acres at Discovery Green nearly 4 times!

“Discovery Green is a place where community connection and environmental sustainability go hand in hand,” said Jeff Bettison, vice president of Texas sales operations for Green Mountain. “We’re proud to extend our commitment to power their operations with 100% wind energy and help them deliver on their commitment to the environment.”

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.
