Owners Buy Green for Ski Resorts

August 2006 - Tim and Diane Mueller, owners of Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Colorado, Okemo Mountain Resort in Vermont, and Mount Sunapee Resort in New Hampshire, entered into an agreement with Gunnison County Electric Association to purchase 27 million kWh of renewable energy certificates (RECs) to offset 100% of the electricity use at the three ski resorts for one year. The RECs are being supplied by Sterling Planet. The Muellers are paying a 10% premium on the RECs price to promote Colorado wind energy development through a partnership between Sterling Planet and the Colorado Governor's Office of Energy Management and Conservation.
