PINECREST, Fla., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  JustGreen™ Lifestyle by Just Energy is pleased to announce a unique partnership with the Village of Pinecrest in Florida to offer residents and businesses a simple new option to reduce their environmental footprint through carbon offsets. Generated from carbon emission reduction projects, the carbon offset program will contribute to the municipality's goal of reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions 7% below 1996 levels, by 2014.  The Village of Pinecrest is the first municipality in the State of Florida and one of the few cities in the United States to offer a volunteer carbon offset program to residents and businesses.

To celebrate the partnership, the Village of Pinecrest is hosting an inaugural "carbon neutral" event benefitting Pinecrest Gardens on Saturday, November 3 rd 2012. The carbon emissions associated with the event will be offset using carbon offsets donated by JustGreen Lifestyle.

"The Village of Pinecrest is dedicated to ensuring a better quality of life and a greener and cleaner environment for our residents and future generations.  Neutralizing our greenhouse gas emissions through carbon offsets and investing in emission reduction projects is just one of the many ways we are working towards meeting our Green Action Plan goals," said Cindy Lerner, Mayor of the Village of Pinecrest.

JustGreen Lifestyle is Just Energy's "green energy initiative" designed to help consumers work towards a cleaner planet by pursuing renewable and sustainable energy solutions that support green renewable energy projects across North America. The carbon offsets and renewable energy credits (RECs) available through JustGreen provide simple choices and empower consumers to take action now to reduce their personal environmental footprint.

"JustGreen Lifestyle is proud to partner with the Village of Pinecrest and help make this inaugural event carbon neutral," said Gerardo Manalac, Executive Vice President of JustGreen.  "We congratulate Pinecrest's leadership for recognizing the importance of investing in renewable energy and carbon offsets. Over the coming months, we look forward to introducing our suite of products and services to residents and businesses that will further support the Pinecrest's local sustainability initiatives."

To date, Just Energy has offset 2.6 billion lbs of carbon emissions - equivalent to taking 233,600 passenger vehicles off the road for an entire year - and has injected 4.1 million MWh of renewable power into electricity grids across North America. That's enough to power 375,900 homes for a year. Just Energy has invested over $70 million and offers one of the most diverse portfolios of carbon offset and renewable energy projects in North America to support, wherever possible, local sustainability initiatives.
