The InterContinental Miami Hotel says it is partnering with Greenlight Energy to purchase 16.064 GWh of wind energy this year - enough to offset 100% of the hotel's estimated energy usage for the year.

Representatives from the InterContinental say the hotel is the largest green power purchaser in the state of Florida and maintains its place on the 100% Purchaser's List maintained by the Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership.

The InterContinental Miami is one of seven InterContinental properties that purchased wind energy. The other participating InterContinental properties are InterContinental New York Barclay, InterContinental New York Times Square, InterContinental Boston, InterContinental Boston Residences, InterContinental San Francisco and InterContinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco.
