Constellation Energy will match the estimated electricity usage of the American Planning Association's (APA) 2011 National Planning Conference with 50 Green-e Energy-certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) from wind facilities. The conference will be held this week at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

By matching the electricity used at APA's National Planning Conference with RECs, Constellation avoids 55,943 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions, which the company says is equivalent to the annual greenhouse gas emissions from five passenger vehicles.
