Eco-friendly shopping center and leading renewable energy provider bringing greener energy to North Texas
Submitted by Green Mountain Energy
Green Mountain Energy today announced it has entered into a sustainability partnership with The Hill, a unique, eco-friendly shopping and dining destination in the heart of Dallas. The organizations have teamed up to explore and implement sustainability upgrades for the property and power common areas of the development with 100 percent renewable energy. This agreement represents the first Sustainability Partnership between Green Mountain and a mixed-use project in Dallas.
“The Hill is a shining example of the power of sustainability and the benefits it can yield to a shared community,” said Mark Parsons, vice president of Green Mountain Energy. “The development’s unique transformation of retrofitting an existing midcentury modern shopping center into a vibrant, walkable marketplace is testament of our shared commitment to preservation, sustainability and the environment.”
By powering the current common areas of the existing restaurants and shops with renewable energy, Green Mountain estimates The Hill will avoid 2.2 million pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions over the life of the partnership, which is like taking 250 cars off the road for a year.
“Our focus on conservation makes our partnership with Green Mountain a natural fit as we aim to provide a true sense of community for DFW residents and business-owners,” said Matthew Gilmore, senior vice president of EB Arrow and asset manager for The Hill. “It is our hope that this partnership will drive more energy-conscious retailers, restaurants and visitors to our eclectic, environmentally-friendly community.”
