EPA renews Alpine Bank membership in Green Power Leadership Club

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded Alpine Bank membership in the 2015 Green Power Leadership Club, an elite group of Green Power Partners who are demonstrating exemplary environmental leadership.

The EPA Green Power Partnership is a voluntary program that supports the organizational procurement of green power by offering expert advice, technical support, tools and resources. Green power is electricity produced from a subset of renewable resources, such as solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and low-impact hydro. Partner organizations must buy green power in amounts proportional to their annual electricity use. The Green Power Leadership Club honors Partners that substantially exceed EPA’s minimum purchase requirements for an organizationwide commitment.

Since the second quarter of 2009, Alpine Bank has purchased 100 percent green electric power directly from utility providers (where available) and via renewable energy certificates. In addition, three bank locations produce some of their own electricity with photovoltaic modules. The bank first became an EPA Green Power Partner in June 2009.

“The result [of purchasing 100 percent green power] is cleaner air that helps protect our health and lifestyle and renewable energy jobs that help advance our local economies,” said David Miller, vice president and leader of the Alpine Bank Green Team.

Zislis ebook an Amazon bestseller

Local organization expert, strategies consultant and Post Independent columnist Evan Zislis recently published his first ebook, “ClutterFree Revolution,” which became an overnight bestseller in 11 countries last month on Amazon, hitting number No. 1 in eight of them, including the U.S. With over 10,000 downloads in the first week on Amazon, ClutterFree Revolution is currently in the final layout and design stages before going to print later this year. A tough-love pep talk for American families, this is more than just a pocket guide for clearing out and getting organized. This book is an instruction manual for intentional simplicity, a return to less stuff and more life. Discover how a simple three-step process has the power to shift our paradigm around our things, and deliver a more rewarding life with far-reaching impacts beyond our own homes and families. Carbondale resident Casey Sheahan, the former president and CEO of Patagonia, says “ClutterFree Revolution” inspires a new generation of conscious consumers,” and calls it a “must read for every household in America.”
