The Center for Resource Solutions has announced that carpet manufacturer Beaulieu Commercial has joined the Green-e Marketplace by purchasing enough Green-e certified renewable energy to meet 100% of its annual electricity needs for all of its U.S. operations.

Part of the 9,500 MWh purchase was provided through the Tennessee Valley Authority's green power program, called Green Power Switch, which sources local renewable energy from different resources, including wind, solar and methane gas. Additionally, Beaulieu purchased enough Green-e certified wind energy certificates from Sterling Planet to offset the remainder of its annual electricity use. As a member of Green-e Marketplace, Beaulieu can now display the Green-e logo on its Nexterra tile line to inform consumers that the tile was manufactured with 100% Green-e certified renewable energy.

"We are pleased that Beaulieu Commercial showed leadership in reducing the environmental impacts of its electricity use," says Aleka Seville, manager of Green-e Marketplace. "By investing in clean energy, the company is recognizing a greater responsibility than just profitability. It is doing its part to mitigate the costs we all share from the pollution created from fossil-fuel energy generation."
