Liberty Power has donated wind-generated renewable energy certificates (RECs) to match 100% of the estimated electricity usage at the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's (USHCC) Annual Convention.

According to the Florida-based independent retail electricity supplier, the USHCC Convention is known as the largest gathering of Hispanic business leaders in the U.S., and this year's event is being held Sept. 15 through Sept. 17 in Chicago.

Liberty Power says it will supply enough RECs from Illinois wind energy facilities to match the estimated consumption for the event's venue, the Hilton Chicago, for the duration of the three-day convention.

"We are excited to demonstrate the commitment of the USHCC and Liberty Power to sustainability by purchasing Illinois wind RECs to offset the consumption of the USHCC's Annual Convention in Chicago," comments David Hernandez, co-founder and CEO of Liberty Power.
