Going green in Norfolk

Green HomeReally nice front page story in the Virginian-Pilot today on a green business here in Norfolk.

Environmental Resource is among “a handful” of small commercial customers in Dominion Virginia Power’s territory that generate most or all of their own electricity, said Daisy Pridgen, a spokeswoman for the power company.


Besides the wind turbine and about 150 solar panels, they put in energy-efficient lighting and plumbing systems. CozyPure is one of almost 1,400 organizations listed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership, which includes those that buy or invest in a required amount of renewable energy.

That’s pretty awesome. And I had no idea it existed. Good to see this company getting some much-needed publicity.
