California’s Great America Purchases 100% Renewable Energy from Silicon Valley Power to Cover Electricity Use

Silicon Valley Power (SVP) is pleased to announce that California’s
Great America, Santa Clara’s 100-acre amusement park, will cover

Clara Green Power program. Santa Clara
Green Power is a renewable energy program that allows Santa

Great America’s commitment to 100% wind
energy – 12,810 megawatt-hours (MWhs) annually – makes it one of the
largest renewable energy purchasers in the Santa Clara Green Power program
and a member of the U.S.
EPA’s Green Power Partnership’s Leadership Club. This annual clean
energy purchase is similar to the output of four large-scale wind
turbines – reducing Great America’s carbon footprint from electricity
use by over 7 million pounds of carbon dioxide each year.

“We are thrilled about Great America’s participation in Santa
Clara Green Power,” said Larry Owens, SVP Senior Division
Manager of Customer Services. “Their renewable
energy commitment will place them among the top echelon of Silicon
Valley’s environmental leaders and make it the first Northern California
amusement park of its kind to choose 100% renewable energy.”

This commitment to wind energy through SVP’s local utility program was
an obvious step for Great America, which values strengthening the
community in which it does business.

“California’s Great America is proud to partner with Silicon Valley
Power and is committed to doing its part to better the environment,”
said California’s Great America Vice President & General Manager Raul
Rehnborg. “It is important for us to reduce our carbon footprint and
join the growing number of local businesses that embrace the importance
of renewable energy.”

Great America joins the increasing circle of large businesses in Santa
Clara that support renewable energy, including the City of Santa Clara, Intel,
Materials and Santa
Clara University. In addition, more than 70 small businesses and
4,000 households have committed to purchasing 100% renewable energy
through Santa Clara Green Power.
