The Stop & Shop Supermarket Co., headquartered in Quincy, Mass., has purchased Green-e certified renewable energy certificates from Norcross, Ga.-headquartered renewable energy retailer Sterling Plant to match 100% of its electricity use at a new store in Kennebunk, Maine. The store will receive 2,700,000 kWh of renewable energy annually.
