Ithaca Goes 100% Renewable

January 2012 - The City of Ithaca, New York signed a 2-year power purchase agreement with Integrys Energy Services to purchase 100 percent of the city's electricity consumption from renewable energy sources. Beginning in January 2012, Ithaca will begin purchasing Green-e Energy certified renewable energy certificates to match all of its electricity use.

Ithaca has sourced 5 percent of its electricity from wind farms since 2006, and the new 100-percent green power agreement will help the city move toward its 2016 goal to reduce its carbon footprint by 20 percent.
