The Brick Companies Converts Entire Maryland Portfolio To 100 Percent WGES CleanSteps WindPower And Reduces Its Carbon Footprint

The Brick Companies announced today that all of its properties in Maryland, including six commercial buildings, two golf clubs and two marinas, are now powered by 100 percent CleanSteps® WindPower from Washington Gas Energy Services (WGES). The purchase of approximately 11.6 million kWh of WGES wind power will help reduce greenhouse gases and is equivalent to taking more than 1,500 cars off the road for one year.

“Committing to purchase 100 percent of our electricity from wind power provides an economic benefit based on our historic energy costs and represents another step toward our goal of being a leader in environmental stewardship,” said Lex Birney, CEO of The Brick Companies. “This means that our employees, tenants and customers can be assured that by supporting us, they are also supporting green resources and clean energy.”

Commercial properties within The Brick Companies’ Maryland portfolio include Montrose West in Rockville; Lakefront at Washingtonian in Gaithersburg; 600 Washington Avenue in Towson; The Brick Companies Center in Edgewater; The Union Box Building in Baltimore; and the Lusby Center in Lusby. The Brick Companies also owns Atlantic Marina Resort and Atlantic Marina on the Magothy in Pasadena; The Golf Club at South River in Edgewater, and Queenstown Harbor on the Eastern Shore.

By purchasing WGES CleanSteps® WindPower, The Brick Companies and their tenants and customers are helping the environment and supporting an alternative energy source. In 2011, total customer purchases of WGES CleanSteps® WindPower have helped prevent 1.2 billion pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the environment, equivalent to taking more than 105,000 cars off the road for one year.

“We commend The Brick Companies for their environmental stewardship,” said Harry Warren, President of WGES. “As a leading competitive energy provider, we are committed to offering customers with options that include green products. It is rewarding to partner with businesses such as The Brick Companies who recognize that their choice of alternative energy products can produce a substantial and positive impact on our environment.”
