Aspen Skiing Company
The microhydroelectric plant on Fanny Hill now has an educational display that will be viewed by an estimated 750,000 skiers annually.
Aspen Skiing Company has used an innovative micro-hydro plan to help power their buildings. In 2005, its first complete year of operation, Aspen Skiing Company produced 200,000 kilowatt- hours (enough to power 20 homes), while preventing the emission of 400,000 pounds (181,437 kg) of carbon dioxide. This installation is part of Aspen Skiing Company's work to be a leader on BICEP's key principle of increasing investments in clean energy technology.
