City of Austin Facilities Now Fully Powered by Renewables

The City of Austin, Texas is now the largest U.S. municipality to use only renewable energy to power its facilities.  The city uses Austin Energy's GreenChoice, a voluntary program, to buy their electricity.

The city has bought about 400 million kWh of renewable energy from the program that will get the electricity from a wind farm in West Texas.

According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Austin Energy sold more renewable energy than any other U.S. utility in 2010, selling 754 million kWh electricity from wind and landfill gas.

I was unaware of the fact that there are facialtys that collect landfill gas. Also that landfill gas was able to be used as a energy source. It is a oustanding idea, I wish that more places would adapt this. Good job letting the info out there!

As an east-cost liberal, I have to say I'm impressed.
Looks like I won't be talking smack about the great state of Texas any time soon.
