I'm curious what sort of renewable energy was provided by a company called "Naturgas".
Montreal metro runs on hydro
written by dofa, June 11, 2009
I'm not sure the claim of being the first is correct. In the province of Quebec in Canada electricity is mostly coming from huge hydro facilities in the north of the province. Perhaps not the best environmental alternative but it is a renewable energy source. The metro in Montreal goes back to the 1960's
What about Norway?

Here in Norway we have nearly all renewable energy. And we´ve had it for 100 years. So I guess you can say our trains have run on clean energy for ages, then how come Spain is the first?

Calgary's LRT system is top viagra online sales run by wind power as well. Not sure that Bilbao is the first metro system to accomplish the feat, but it is commendable nonetheless.

Naturgas means natural gas and cheap cialis pills since it doesn't say what renewable energy was used I suspect it wasn't renewable at all, but antural gas. Ofcourse that may produce less CO2 than what they used before but it's certainly not green.
That's great!...maybe

I also have some suspicions about the "renewable" energy coming from Naturgas. If, however, they ARE powering their transit system with truly renewable energy, AWESOME! I hope to hear about more cities following suit.
