Working to be green

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:(This letter was originally addressed to Mayor Helen Klanderud.)We read with great interest of the city of Aspen’s proposal to supplement a greater portion of its energy supply with renewable wind energy. We strongly applaud and support this initiative.It is our desire for all of our offices (there are seven across the United States) to utilize 100 percent renewable energy within the next four years. We hope that in the near future, the city of Aspen will offer a program similar to the one offered by Holy Cross Energy, where customers are given the option of having 100 percent of their electricity provided by renewable energy sources. Please let us know if we can assist you in this effort. Design Workshop is currently in the process of registering our offices at 120 E. Main St. in hopes of becoming the second building in Aspen (after the Sundeck) to be LEED-certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. Having a renewable energy option available would assist us in attaining that goal.Again, we applaud your efforts to continue Aspen’s leadership in the area of sustainable design and development.Kurt Culbertsonchairman/CEODesign Workshop Inc.
