Airstream Inc. announced that its corporate office and manufacturing center in Jackson Center, Ohio, is now 100% powered by renewable energy credits (RECs).

Windpower reported that Airstream’s new 750,000-square-foot facility that is opening in the next 12 months will also carry the same commitment. Airstream is subsidiary of Elkhart, Ind.-based RV manufacturer Thor Industries Inc..

“Our work at Airstream is inextricably linked to the outdoors, so we are continuously exploring ways to do more with less,” said Bob Wheeler, Airstream’s president and CEO. “Powering our operations through renewable energy credits purchased here in Ohio is a net win for our community and our customers.”

Airstream is participating in Jackson Center Municipal Power’s EcoSmart Choice program. The program allows participants to purchase RECs from wind, hydroelectric or landfill gas projects offered through American Municipal Power Inc.
