Intuit Inc., maker of TurboTax, QuickBooks, ProConnect and Mint, has announced a new program, Purely Green, that will share its corporate wind-power procurement in Texas with commercial and residential customers. Intuit has teamed up with retail energy provider, Just Energy to launch the plan.
Purely Green, which will be unveiled just ahead of Earth Day, is designed to offer discounted renewable electricity to hundreds of thousands of electricity customers across Texas. The renewable energy and renewable energy credits will be sourced from EDP Renewables’ (EDPR) Lone Star II Wind Farm located near Abilene, TX.
“Purely Green addresses two issues that are deeply important to us – our mission for powering prosperity for customers and being good stewards of the environment,” said Cece Morken, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Strategic Partnerships at Intuit. “We want the community where we live and work to have the same opportunity we do.”
Houston-based Renewable Power Direct (RPD), a national green energy marketer, worked with Intuit and Just Energy to structure the program and to source the physical wind power from EDPR.
“This program enables Texas residents to leverage Intuit’s buying power to access discounted green power for their homes and businesses,” said Sean Kinghorn, Sustainability program lead for Intuit.
“This program is a game changer for Texas electricity customers,” added Eric Alam, CEO of RPD. “Thanks to Intuit’s leadership, we expect other large companies that buy wind and solar energy to begin exploring how best to share and leverage their green energy choices for customers and employees. This could significantly boost future demand for renewable energy and greatly expand the climate benefits of corporate green power programs. We’re very excited to be a part of this initiative.”
