The Santa Clara Marriott will purchase 1,608 MWh of electricity generated from wind power annually from Silicon Valley Power (SVP) through Santa Clara Green Power, the utility's 100% renewable energy program.

This purchase qualifies the Santa Clara Marriott's facility to be a member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership.

"Santa Clara Green Power makes it easy for businesses within Silicon Valley Power's service territory, such as the Marriott, to support clean energy derived from wind and solar resources," says Larry Owens, division manager of marketing and customer services for SVP. "Santa Clara Marriott's participation in our green power program demonstrates its commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and makes the Santa Clara Marriott an environmental leader in the community."

SVP will purchase renewable energy credits on behalf of the Santa Clara Marriott from newly constructed wind farms and solar photovoltaic projects located within California.
