February 2014 - The City of Joliet, Illinois, has partnered with JustGreen, a subsidiary of Just Energy Group Inc., to purchase renewable energy. Renewable energy certificates (RECs) are obtained from 100% U.S. wind power facilities and are certified by Green-e Energy, a voluntary certification program for renewable energy. The REC purchase is equivalent to Joliet's electricity use for the next three years, which is estimated to be 167 million kWh.
