Sundance Square, a 35-block mixed-use residential, office, and retail development in Fort Worth, Texas, announced a five-year green energy purchase from Green Mountain Energy for the period from 2008-2012. According to the U.S. EPA, the purchase makes Sundance Square the largest green power purchaser among Texas real estate developments and the second largest in the industry nationally. The 2008 purchase of 6.3 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of wind energy represents about 10% of Sundance Square's electricity consumption.
Sundance Square, which advertises its use of renewable energy onsite through signs and storefront window displays, draws an estimated 10 million visitors per year. Sundance Square also recycles an estimated 23 tons of refuse per month and recently purchased an electric car from the Chrysler Company, used by parking services personnel and powered with renewable energy.
