Mountain View Grand Resort + Spa Recognized as 100% Green Power Purchaser

Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa is now recognized as a 100% Green Power Purchaser as part of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership Program. Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa in New Hampshire’s White Mountains is the only hotel or resort to buy green power to fulfill all of its electricity requirements. This hotel is one among the seven companies in New Hampshire to have gained this recognition.

North Power Systems had installed a 121-foot wind turbine, which was brought online this past fall that helped to meet a substantial portion of green energy commitments of Mountain View Grand. This 100% privately funded turbine helps the resort to offset a significant portion of its present electricity consumption.

NewMix Wind Green-e Energy Certified Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) are being purchased by Mountain View Grand from Constellation NewEnergy. Mountain View Grand is buying these certificates to meet the standards for the 100% Green Power Partnership program.

Carbon dioxide emissions of about 2,137,848 pounds are avoided by Mountain View Grand’s 100% use of wind power. This amount is equal to the carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity used by 126 average homes in America or to the emissions of greenhouse gases from 185 passenger vehicles every year.

Chris Diego, Managing Director of Mountain View Grand, remarked that the green power and wind turbine initiative are two measures undertaken by Mountain View Grand to reduce its carbon footprint. Diego stated that the hotel is interested in actively establishing itself as a model for environmental responsibility by offering its guests with a comforting experience of a natural environment.

Diego further remarked that a number of environmental sustainability projects have been undertaken by Mountain View Grand, which also includes a towel and linen reuse program; a recycling program; producing its own flowers and vegetables; using energy-saving lighting; irrigating its grounds and golf course by using its water tower; recycling cooking oil to produce diesel fuel; raising Leicester Longwool sheep, establishing a partnership with the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests to promote land conservation and buying local food and beverage products.
