Georgia Power shares the spirit of Earth Day

This week, various communities around the United States are celebrating Earth Day. April 22 marked the 43rd anniversary of the celebration.

With this news, Georgia Power announced that it has reached a deal to import wind energy from Oklahoma to the state by 2016. Several environmental organizations across the nation are in support of the move.

In this plan, Georgia Power will purchase 205 megawatts of power in two contracts, which will help power approximately 60,000 homes. The power source is extremely affordable.

According to experts, the addition of wind power will offer consumers alternatives for energy and keep expenses stable over an extended period. Furthermore, wind source does not use water, which will help conserve the supply.

In addition to this environmental achievement, there are other triumphs in the area. For example in light of a Better Buildings Challenge, approximately 70 commercial buildings have promised to reduce energy consumption by 20 percent. The goal is to reduce use by the year 2020. The initiative represents approximately 50 million square feet of commercial real estate in Atlanta.

In the spirit of Earth Day, it is great to see companies making serious efforts to think outside of the box. The revaluation of energy sources is a great start to preserving the natural beauty of the outdoors.

If you are interested in earth preservation or renewed resources in your area, you may benefit from speaking with a qualified environmental law attorney. A lawyer can help you in any specific commitments you have to maintaining the beauty of your community.
