Green Power Offsets, a subsidiary of EDP Renewables North America, has donated 200,000 kWh of wind-generated renewable energy credits (RECs) to offset the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the electricity use of the 2014 Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital.

According to Green Power, the RECs will avoid an estimated 151 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. Peter O'Brien, the festival's executive director, says, "The Environmental Film Festival is proud to partner with Green Power Offsets as we present our 22nd annual program. Their generous donation of RECs is a vital part of our organization's commitment to sustainability, making it possible for us to partner with 65 venues across [Washington, D.C.] while minimizing our carbon footprint."
