By participating in the IPL Green Power Option program at the 100 percent level, BST is offsetting carbon dioxide emissions equivalent of 244 passenger cars being driven over one year or almost six railcars of coal being consumed. Alternatively, BST's participation will save the equivalent of nine acres of forest each year or nearly 30,000 trees planted and grown over 10 years. In addition to its participation in IPL's Green Power Option, BST contributes to other Green causes and environmentally-responsible organizations including the Nature Conservancy and the Indianapolis Zoo.
"Using alternative energy sources allows us to operate our business in an environmentally conscious manner," commented Mills. "The IPL Green Power Option program enables us to take the concept of responsible corporate citizenship to a global level by using renewable energy to help preserve the world environment for future generations."
IPL Green Power customers can participate in the program at 10 percent, 25 percent, 50 percent and 100 percent levels. Customers pay a small incremental fee, which is set once a year and added to the IPL bill in addition to the costs normally associated with the standard, regulated rates and charges.
