Liberty Power, an independent retail electric supplier, has announced it will donate wind-generated renewable energy certificates (RECs) to match 100% of the estimated electricity consumption at the 2013 National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) Conference and Business Opportunity Fair.

The NMSDC Conference is scheduled to take place Oct. 27 through Oct. 30 in San Antonio, Texas. Liberty Power says it will supply enough RECs from regional wind facilities to offset the estimated usage for the four-day event's venue, the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

"It is our privilege to support the NMSDC's commitment to sustainability through the donation of RECs sourced from Texas-generated wind power,” comments David Hernandez, co-founder and CEO of Liberty Power.
