Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) announced this week that the Marketplace shopping emporium is the first business participant to join AMP’s Green energy program. Participants in the program choose 100 percent renewable energy from the utility.

AMP estimates the roughly 123,900 kilowatt hours used by the Marketplace annually, now derived from clean wind and solar generation sources, will prevent the release of over 154,600 pounds of carbon dioxide each year.

“Alameda Green fits perfectly with our goals as a local, sustainable business by enabling my business to choose 100 percent clean, renewable energy,” said Donna Layburn, owner of Marketplace. “I hear often from our customers how much they appreciate our commitment to being as green as we can be.”

Marketplace is no eligible to join the U.S. EPA Green Power Partnership, a national program that encourages organizations to purchase renewable energy. Participation in the partnership provides access to expert advice, green power tools and resources, and, basically, bragging rights, according to the EPA website.

Marketplace is located on Park Street at Buena Vista.
