The Town of Mountain Village, Colo., and the Mountain Village Owners Association have agreed to purchase $59,000 worth of green tag renewable energy for the town from the San Miguel Power Association (SMPA).

Electrical usage for 100% of the Telluride Mountain Village gondola and the Town of Mountain Village's electrical usage, including the Town Hall, the Telluride Conference Center, the maintenance shop, snowmelt system and town street lights, will be powered using renewable energy green tags.

"I’m excited to announce that Mountain Village is now the single largest purchaser of renewable energy in Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association’s system," says Bobby Blair, a representative of SMPA.
