The Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) has announced its support for the sustainability efforts of the town of Breckenridge, Colo., through the sale of BEF renewable energy certificates (RECs).

Breckenridge purchased 6,511 RECs to offset the electrical energy consumption of its infrastructure. These RECs replace traditional polluting sources of electricity with wind energy.

"Our community is a unique resource, and we want to work together to sustain it," says Tim Gagen, town manager for Breckenridge. "Purchasing wind energy offsets is one of the arrows in the quiver of all of the things we've been doing."
