Upon the arrival of our official LEED Platinum certification plaque from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), our Green Mountain Energy headquarters office couldn’t help but do a little celebrating! LEED is the foremost program for the design, construction, and operation of green buildings, and Platinum is the highest designation offered by the USGBC. So you can understand why we’re overjoyed and excited about this important milestone in our company’s history.
This designation makes Green Mountain HQ the first commercial interior to be awarded LEED Platinum certification in Austin, Texas. Located in the heart of downtown, our office has a profound appreciation for the integrity and beauty of this city, and we’re proud to be a part of it.
We welcomed our friends in the Austin community to celebrate our LEED Platinum status with a clean energy panel featuring members of the University of Texas at Austin’s Energy Institute, as well as tours of our environmentally-designed space, and a special performance by Matt the Electrician.
