City of Evanston Goes 20% Green

February 2007 - The City of Evanston, Illinois has committed to use green power for 20% of the electricity needs of its municipal facilities. Under an agreement with Constellation NewEnergy, Evanston is purchasing 5.5 million kWh of renewable energy certificates (RECs) sourced from wind energy facilities. The RECs purchase will add about $7,000 to the cost of the energy agreement, or 0.13¢/kWh.

The decision to purchase RECs is another step in the city's ongoing environmental efforts, which include replacing city traffic lights with energy efficient bulbs and using cleaner burning bio-diesel fuel in city vehicles.
