ENTERCOM Classic Triple A KMTT (THE MOUNTAIN)/SEATTLE becomes the first radio station in the SEATTLE area to invest in new, renewable energy resources to offset its own electricity consumption. Partnering with Walker’s Renton Subaru, THE MOUNTAIN aims to reduce its own environmental impact and to encourage other businesses in the area to take advantage of renewable resources in an effort to minimize emissions via SEATTLE CITY LIGHT.
"We’re very proud to be the first radio station in the PACIFIC NORTHWEST with zero emission studios," said om DAVE RICHARDS. "THE MOUNTAIN connects to over 500,000 listeners, and we hope others will take these steps and join us."
As a SEATTLE CITY LIGHT customer, all the electricity used by THE MOUNTAIN to power its broadcast equipment, studio computers, lighting and more is already greenhouse gas neutral. SEATTLE CITY Light gets 90 percent of its electricity from clean, renewable hydroelectric resources and fully offsets all its carbon emissions.
THE MOUNTAIN is going above and beyond by participating in the utility’s GREEN UP program to invest in additional new, renewable energy.
