HOUSTON – Feb. 3, 2021 – CSD Energy Advisors, a Texas-based provider of energy management solutions, announced today their Houston office will operate on 100 percent renewable energy in 2021. The company successfully achieved its “green” initiative through Texas sourced wind Renewable Energy Credits (REC), which align with the company’s projected annual energy consumption. Roots Clean Energy customized the sustainable energy program that will reduce CSD’s Scope 2 emissions and provide them with zero emission electricity in 2021.
“We’re excited to announce that our company has taken the first steps to achieve our ESG goals by lowering our carbon footprint and acquiring 100 percent renewable wind power for our office in 2021,” said Andrew Barth, partner and co-founder of CSD Energy Advisors. “Working closely with Roots Clean Energy we tailored a multi-year program that will not only reduce our indirect emissions, but financially support renewable energy investments across Texas.”
Through certified Texas wind RECs, CSD Energy Advisors’ renewable energy program will reduce indirect emissions that would have resulted from electricity generation purchased from a retail electricity provider. The sustainability program moves the company forward with other industry leaders who are implementing solutions to reduce the environmental impact of their business operations.
“This is an exciting milestone for CSD Energy Advisors,” said Alex Sowyrda, president of Roots Clean Energy. “There’s a growing focus on climate change and providing green energy solutions for businesses across the country. The declining costs of renewable energy combined with the ease of implementing scalable solutions is making renewable contracts more attractive for companies of all sizes. Purchasing wind RECs, as well as structuring physical power purchases and Power Purchase Agreements, are just a few ways we make meeting sustainability goals simple for our clients.”
Based on the renewable purchase, CSD is estimated to avoid 11.3 metric tons of CO2 emissions per year. This is the equivalent to a reduction of 26.2 barrels of oil consumed or 3.8 tons of waste recycled instead of landfilled.
