Jackson, Wyo., Goes 100% Green

June 2007 - The town of Jackson, Wyo., announced that it will power 100% of its municipal operations with renewable energy. The town uses about 8.5 million kWh of electric energy annually to run its various operations, which include Town Hall, the Public Works shops, water wells, the wastewater treatment plant and the lights on the Town Square. Under an agreement with its local utility, Lower Valley Energy, the city will purchase most of the output of the Strawberry Creek hydroelectric project, which is a 1.5-MW certified low-impact, run-of-river facility. The green power commitment will cost the town an additional $45,000 each year, or a rate premium of about 0.53¢/kWh
