March 2012 - NativeEnergy and twenty-five organizations are collaborating to help build the 3.2 megawatt (MW) Iowa Farms Wind Project. Through the purchase of NativeEnergy's Help Build carbon offsets, the companies provide upfront funding for construction and development of projects. Organizations purchase the carbon credits that a project is estimated to generate over a fixed period, typically 10 years, and receive a share of the project's long-term verified carbon reductions after they are generated. The organizations are also sponsoring the Wewoka Biogas Project, located in Oklahoma, and the Northeast Farm Separation Project, located in Pennsylvania.
The participating organizations include: eBay, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Esurance, Eileen Fisher, Clif Bar, Comedy Central, ABR, Inc., AllPack, Aveda, Ben & Jerry's, National Geographic, The Brick Companies, Brighter Planet, Carlisle & Company, College of the Atlantic, Credit Union Cherry Blossom Run, Designtex, Eco Products, Pax World, Presidio, Reverb, RLP Capital, Touring Green, and Vital Choice.
