Purchase Supports New Development of Clean Renewable Energy


Huntington Beach, CA (July 18, 2012) – Joliware (www.Joliware.com), a developer of software applications for mobile devices and smartphones, announced today its purchase of green power and its partnership with theU.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Green Power Partnership. Joliware is purchasing more than 19,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, equivalent to 200 percent of the organization’s electricity use.  Joliware is working with Virdao to develop environmentally positive programs and to purchase renewable energy (RECs).

“We are proud to become a Green Power Partner and to be recognized by the EPA for supporting renewable energy and combating climate change,” said A.J. Jolivette, president of Joliware. “By offsetting 200% of our electricity with clean energy generated in the U.S., our operations and products help to reduce climate change while also supporting American jobs and energy independence. This investment in green power is foundational step for us, and it supports our efforts with programs like the Green-e Marketplace.”

Green power is electricity that is generated from environmentally preferable renewable resources, such as wind, solar, geothermal, biogas, biomass, and low-impact hydro. Purchases of green power help accelerate the development of new renewable energy capacity nationwide and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector.

“EPA is excited to welcome Joliware as a Green Power Partner and congratulates the company’s voluntary purchase of green power to meet 200 percent of their electricity use,” said Blaine Collison, director of EPA’s Green Power Partnership. “Joliware is helping to reduce climate risk and air pollution, and we encourage other organizations to follow their lead.”

According to the U.S. EPA, Joliware’s green power purchase of more than 19,000 kWh is equivalent to avoiding more than 10 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Joliware’s purchase of RECs demonstrates the company’s commitment to a sustainable and cool world, and complements the company’s existing green operational strategies including use of hybrid vehicles. The company’s Musik Freedom App is the first Apple iTunes product that is Green-e Marketplace Certified, and 100% of the electricity used to develop this product is offset with certified renewable energy.

Joliware worked with Virdao, Inc. to acquire the renewable energy credits and to establish an environmental sustainability program. “Joliware is a technology innovator and thought leader, and we are honored to continue our long-standing relationship with Mr. Jolivette, and to facilitate this renewable energy partnership with the EPA,” said Eric Taylor, principal of Virdao.
