SSC GOES 100% GREEN POWER
BELLINGHAM, WA. – Sanitary Service Company (SSC) is now “greening” 100% of its electricity usage through PSE’s Green Power program. SSC’s switch earlier this month makes them the largest private businesses in Whatcom County to use 100% Green Power.
“We were at 46% Green Power when we originally signed up, but made the decision to go 100% Green Power because we wanted to do more to contribute to supporting renewable energy options for our region and help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels,” said SSC President Paul Razore. “We hope our move will encourage other large Whatcom County businesses to join us as a Green Power Program Business Partner,” Razore said.
PSE’s Green Power Program, ranked as one of the top 10 Green Power programs in the U.S, provides SSC with just over 200,000 kilowatt hours annually of domestically-produced, alternative energy. The city of Bellingham was also recently recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency as the first Green Power Community in Washington – one of only seven in the nation. Green Power is electricity generated from renewable, non-polluting resources such as wind or solar power.
