“I would like to applaud Washington Gas for making the decision in 2011 to become our first East Coast customer,” said K.R. Sridhar, Principal Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Bloom Energy. “Since that time, we have enjoyed a great partnership and look forward to supporting continued energy leadership by Washington Gas.”Washington Gas’ commitment to reducing its carbon footprint is reflected in the company’s operating practices which target a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from its gas delivery system and by upgrading and replacing infrastructure. Washington Gas’ objective is to realize at least a 12 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions for every therm of natural gas delivered in 2015, and at least an 18 percent reduction by 2020.
