What sustainable energy projects really look like

Today's Summer Blog Challenge asks us to "July 27- Write up something about an alternative energy source."  This gives me a chance to toot my company's horn (it's good to work for a company that you actually hold in high regard).

I work for a big, global corporation.  Most people don't usually equate large companies with green initiatives or promoting alternative energy.  But I'm very proud to say that my company puts "Sustainability" as one of our key factors of success, right alongside more traditional corporate goals like "Shareholder value" and "Quality."

When the rubber hits the road, promoting sustainable energy is often about finding the right fit for the local environment, and being cost effective.  It's not always "sexy" or "cool."  Here are a few sustainable energy projects that my company has either implemented, or helped another organization implement.
