Conventional electricity generation, based on the combustion of fossil fuels, is the nation’s single largest industrial source of air pollution.
Allegheny Power provides our electricity as it does for most electric users in the region. At ThorpeWood, however, we’ve asked the power company to fill our electrical needs from wind-generated sources – wind farms in West Virginia. We are also pleased to participate in a Green Power Partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “Green” power is electricity generated from sources such as solar, wind and geothermal sources, or biomass and low impact hydroelectric facilities. The increasing availability of green power enables more consumers to take advantage of renewable energy technologies.
