Earth Day Update: GCS’s Ranking in the Green Power Partnership is now #17!

EPA recognizes Grace Church School among nation’s leading green power purchasers

“Grace Church School announces today that it has increased its ranking to No. 17 on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Top 20 K-12 Schools list of the largest green power purchasers. This increased purchase further demonstrates Grace Church School’s commitment to protecting the environment and builds upon its existing partnership with EPA’s Green Power Partnership. Grace Church School is purchasing more than 1 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, which is enough green power to meet 100 percent of the organization’s electricity use. Grace Church School is buying a utility green power product from Green Mountain Energy. This demonstrates a proactive choice to switch away from traditional sources of electricity generation and support cleaner renewable energy alternatives.”

This is a huge honor and we are proud to be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  Purchasing green power helps our organization become more sustainable, while also sending a message to others across the U.S. that supporting clean sources of electricity is a sound business decision and an important choice in reducing climate risk.
