Energy Conservation at Rivanna

When it comes to how we run our business, minimizing our environmental impacts is our first priority. 

Energy Use

We make every effort to reduce energy consumption. Offsetting our energy use is the second important step in reducing the adverse effects of our actions on the environment.

Improving Energy Efficiency

EPA Energy Star logo

We are a member of Energy Star® for Small Business, a voluntary EPA program that has helped us to implement energy saving practices and lower our energy demand. We strongly recommend this program to businesses large and small who are looking to reduce costs and be more responsible about energy use.

Choosing Green Power

Our local energy provider is Dominion Virginia Power.  We have participated in Dominion's Green Power® Program since the program was first launched. The Dominion Green Power program is certified by the nonprofit, third-party organization Green-e® Energy, which ensures product quality and customer protection. Renewable energy is purchased in the form of Renewable Energy Certificates from recently built wind, solar and biomass facilities in Virginia and the surrounding region.

We have offset 100% of our annual electricity every year since 2003.

We Are All In on Climate.
