Smart Grid: Integrity Energy, Globalive Serve Hospitality Market in Canada

By Vinti Vaid November 16, 2010

Integrity Energy Brokers, Inc., and Globalive join forces to launch GREEN STAY Clean Energy Program for the hospitality market in Canada. The GREEN STAY Clean Energy Program presents renewable energy certificates (RECs) that result from Ecologo certified renewable energy generation.

Included in the program is to give Carbon Offsets to counteract all carbon produced by energy utilization of hotels. These Carbon Offsets abide by the ISO 14064-2 standard or the Voluntary Carbon Standard. Businesses participating in this pioneering program can obtain advice and direction for attaining sustainability targets.

The GREEN STAY program works for improvement of locality’s Green Key Rating, to pull guests who love to reside with “green” option and creation of funds from grants and incentive programs that honour sustainability.

Integrity Energy Brokers Inc., a commercial energy brokerage service serving New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ontario (Canada), and Alberta (Canada). Globalive Holdings is a leader in telecommunications solutions in Canada. It also serves internationally to the consumer, business and hospitality markets. The joint venture brings the two giants to make up for all the carbon produced by energy utilization of hotels. 

Commenting on the partnership, Ezio D'Onofrio, president and CEO of Globalive Communications Corp, said in a press release, “It became clear that our hotel customers were looking for solutions to support their sustainability programs across the country.”

After an exhaustive search, we decided to partner with Integrity Energy and are very excited about the Green Stay program they've implemented, added Onofrio.

James Baskin, managing partner of Integrity Energy, commented “Globalive is the leader in the telecommunications space for hospitality."

We’ve worked hard in partnership with Globalive's dedicated hospitality team to tailor a sustainability program to suit their customer relationships, added Baskin.

The partnership of a full service energy sourcing company and a value-added telecommunications services brings sustainable products from a single seller.

In related energy news, last month, APS' renewable energy initiatives earned recognition from two prestigious organizations: the Solar Energy Power Association (SEPA) and the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS).
