November 2010 - Alamo Heights, Texas, has been designated as a Green Power Community by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Alamo Heights community members are collectively purchasing 3.6 million kilowatt-hours of green power annually. CPS Energy, the local municipal utility, assisted in promoting the campaign by sending letters to residents encouraging them to sign up for its Windtricity program.
EPA Green Power Communities must collective use between two and ten percent green power, depending on the annual electricity use of the community. The local government must also join the EPA's Green Power Partnership (GPP) and purchase green power in amounts that meet the GPP minimum purchase requirements.
