WGL Energy Services, Inc. (WGL Energy) will be celebrating Earth Day at Union Station on Thursday and Friday, April 21, 2016 – April 22, 2016.
For the fourth year in a row, WGL Energy will be exhibiting and speaking at the event, educating attendees about how they can reduce the environmental impact of their energy use through efficient and environmentally-friendly energy solutions. This year’s event will be hosted by Earth Day Network and Union Station.
There will be interactive, eco-friendly entertainment designed to raise awareness of environmental issues and encourage sustainability. The event will also feature NASA, with hands-on demonstrations and activities, science exhibits and live presentations.
The Earth Day celebration will be held at Union Station in Washington, D.C. WGL Energy is proud to provide Union Station with 100% WindPower from WGL Energy for their annual electricity load of 16,000 MWh and 100% Carbon Offsets from WGL Energy for their annual natural gas load of 11,000 DTh. This is equivalent to avoiding the consumption of more than 1.3 million gallons of gasoline, or taking almost 2,500 cars off the road for one year.
We hope you’ll join us.
