Law firm Hogan & Hartson LLP has completed an agreement to purchase wind-sourced renewable energy certificates (RECs) for 2008. As part of an agreement with Community Energy Inc., Hogan & Hartson's office in Denver will buy 1.86 million kWh of RECs.

"Hogan & Hartson has considerable involvement providing legal work in the expanding alternative and renewable energy sector, and we recognize the importance in offsetting the impact of the firm's energy use," says Cole Finegan, managing partner in Denver.

Hogan & Hartson's alternative energy practice includes representing the nation's second-largest wind farm on land use, environmental, corporate and other issues. The firm also represents the U.S. leaders in wind power generation, in addition to other clients involved in renewable energy.
