EPA GREEN POWER PURCHASER
Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa has been honored as a 100 percent EPA Green Power Purchaser from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Mountain View Grand is the only hotel or resort and one of only a handful of companies in NH on the list of businesses that purchase green power for all of their electricity use.
GREEN BUSINESS BUREAU PLATINUM AWARD
For two years in a row, Mountain View Grand has been given the highest award—platinum certification status—from the Green Business Bureau's green certification program. The GBB gives national, third-party green business certifications to businesses that work to reach sustainability, save money and improve the environment.
ENVIRONMENTAL GOALS AND ACHIEVEMENTS
The staff at Mountain View Grand are always looking for ways to be more eco-friendly, but are happy to share the current sustainability practices that have garnered the recognition they have received. The three most significant practices include energy and material consumption as well as wind energy supplemented by New Mix Wind Green-e Energy Certified Renewable Energy Certificates.
To Reduce Energy and Material Consumption, Mountain View Grand Uses:
An Integrated Recycling Program for Managing Cardboard, Aluminum, Plastic, Vegetable Oil, and Organic Waste
A Towel and Linen Reuse Program
A New Composting System in the Resort's Herb and Vegetable Garden
Energy-Saving Lighting and Greenfiber Insulation to Retain Heat
AHEAD OF THE CURVE WITH WIND ENERGY
100% of Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa's electricity use is provided through renewable wind energy. Between the on-site 121-foot wind turbine and purchasing NewMix Wind Green-e Energy Certified Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) all of the resort's power comes from wind. It is exciting to note that this offsets the resort's carbon footprint by about 2,500,000 pounds a year, which equals:
The Carbon Emissions it Takes to Provide Energy to 100 Homes Per Year
Greenhouse Gas Annual Emissions of 230 Passenger Vehicles
The Carbon That Is Annually Sequestered by 250 Acres of Pine or Fir Forests
