Sundance Square, downtown Fort Worth's 35-block multi-use development, has debuted in 14th place on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Top 20 Retail list of the largest green power purchasers.
 
The Cowtown development joined three other Texas companies on the list and is purchasing more than 30 million kilowatt-hours of green power annually, enough to meet 46 percent of the organization's electricity use.
 
Rounding out the Lone Star green power players are
Whole Foods Market, H-E-B Grocery Co. and FedEx Office.
 
“This is a huge honor and we are proud to be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,” said Johnny Campbell, president and CEO of Sundance Square, commenting in a news release.
 
“Purchasing green power is an outgrowth of our commitment to sustainability, and supporting clean sources of electricity has been a sound business decision,” Campbell said.
 
Sundance Square is buying a utility green power product from Austin-based Green Mountain Energy.
 
Green power is electricity generated from wind, solar, geothermal, biogas and other resources considered environmentally friendly.
“EPA applauds Sundance Square for its use of green power and in taking a leadership position on the environment,” said Blaine Collison, director of the Green Power Partnership, a voluntary program that encourages organizations to buy green power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with electricity use.
 
“Their commitment to purchasing renewable energy represents Sundance Square’s dedication to reducing their environmental impacts and we hope their example inspires other retail organizations to make the same green power choice,” Collison said.
 
According to the EPA, Sundance Square’s green power purchase of more than 30 million kilowatt hours is equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions of more than 4,000 passenger vehicles per year or the carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity use of more than 3,000 average American homes annually.
