FormStore Has Gone “Green” with the Wind
Fenton, Missouri-based FormStore has purchased renewable energy credits (RECs) equal to 100 percent wind power for its two Fenton manufacturing facilities. RECs purchased through Pure Power prevent approximately 900 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year—equal to the carbon dioxide reduction provided by more than 700 acres of forest storing carbon for one year or taking almost 200 cars off the road for a year.
Said Paul Edwards, president, “Purchasing RECs equal to 100 percent wind power brings FormStore into the forefront with renewable energy resource trends not only in the United States, but worldwide. This is extremely important when working with our channel partners in other energy-minded countries.”
FormStore purchased RECs through its local electrical utility provider, AmerenUE, under its Pure Power program organized by 3Degrees—a climate solutions company enabling businesses and consumers to participate in the market for clean, renewable energy from sources including wind, biomass, geothermal, low-impact hydro and solar energy. The RECs are certified by The Center for Resource Solutions, a non-profit player in third-party certification and verification of renewable energy products. The Green-e standard, recommended by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership, is the quality standard for voluntary renewable energy markets in the United States.
