GDF SUEZ have announced that it will donate 2,000 renewable energy certificates to the United States Tennis Association to offset 100% of the projected energy consumption at the 2011 US Open.

Each certificate represents the environmental attributes of electricity generated from wind, solar or other renewable power facilities. Joseph Crowley, Senior Director of USTA said: “We want to make the Open the greenest, most sustainable tournament in the world, and GDF SUEZ Energy Resources is helping us do that.”

GDF SUEZ Energy Resources NA is one of the largest non-residential retail energy suppliers in the U.S. The company serves over 73,000 accounts for customers having a peak demand ranging from 50 KW to more than 200 MW, with an estimated peak load totaling nearly 10,000 MW.
