Congratulations Pete Ashdown, XMission!

Leftover from last year's Senate campaign, I still get Google Alerts for Pete Ashdown. To my delight this morning, I received two news articles talking about how Pete has switched XMission completely over to renewable energy.
"As one of Utah's top consumers of electricity, I am proud that XMission is setting the example for other businesses. You can eliminate pollution from your business and be economically viable,” said Pete Ashdown, President and founder of XMission.

With this recent upgrade, XMission has increased its renewable energy purchase by 412%. In addition to its participation in the Blue Sky program since 2006, XMission has implemented green standards in its own data center. These improved standards include upgrading equipment and increasing efficiency of power and cooling systems.

XMission also participates in Salt Lake City’s e2 Business Coalition, which helps Salt Lake area businesses reduce their carbon footprint and encourages earth-friendly business practices, such as recycling, efficient lighting, and other measures.

This is one more example of why I supported Pete last year, and plan to support him in his next bid for Utah State Senator.

Congratulations, Pete! And thank you!

  1. Pete is a great example of how a business should be run. When was the last time you heard someone complain about working for Pete?

    This is another in a growing list of examples that show why Pete is successful.

    Goos Job, Pete.
