Roasting With Green Power

Tony’s has long been a supporter of sustainable coffee farming methods. We source our coffee from growers that use organic, bird-friendly and renewable farming methods. We’ve also found a source of sustainable energy to roast our coffee, right in our own back yard.

The Green Power advantage

Tony’s is a Leadership Partner with Puget Sound Energy’s Green Power Program, one the top renewable energy programs in the country. When you enjoy Tony’s Coffee, you are helping:

  • Reduce air emissions

Where does it come from?

All of the Green Power energy is produced here in the Pacific Northwest. The Stateline Wind Project and Hanford Solar Facility are two major sources for PSE’s Green Power Program. These and other sources in Washington and Oregon provide power from these sources:

  • Biomass (14%)
  • Solar (<1%)
  • Wind (86%)

For comparison, the current average mix of resources supplying Puget Sound Energy includes:

  • Large Hydroelectric (45%)
  • Coal (35%)
  • Natural Gas (17%)
  • Wind (2%)
  • Nuclear (1%)
  • Other (1%)*
