Triple Peaks LLC, the operator of the Crested Butte ski area in Colorado, Okemo Mountain Resort in Vermont and Mount Sunapee Resort in New Hampshire, has agreed to purchase 27,000 MW of wind-generated power for Crested Butte.

According to Triple Peak owners Tim and Diane Mueller, Crested Butte will reinvest a percentage of its clean-energy purchase to develop Colorado-based renewable energy resources. The investment is similar to Aspen Skiing Co., which purchased credits for $22,000 MW and later designated 5% of it to Colorado-based power.
