Vail, CO, Colorado
Larkburger, a hamburger restaurant in the Vail Valley community of Edwards, and which also opened a Boulder location this year, announced recently that it has purchased wind-generated electricity for all the power used at its stores.
The company has been offsetting electric energy use through wind-power broker Renewable Choice Energy Inc. of Boulder since Sept. 1. Larkburger has purchasedmore than 201,000 kilowatt-hours of wind power to date.
“Larkburger is committed to minimizing its environmental footprint and using a renewable energy source reinforces this,” said Larkburger President Adam Baker. “From all-natural ingredients to compostable corn cups and containers to reclaimed wood paneling on walls to purchasing wind-power credits, it’s important to us to be as progressive as we can.”
