Chicago, Local Governments Seek Green Power

July 2000 - The City of Chicago has joined with 47 other local government bodies in a load aggregation effort that will include green power. A specific requirement of the group is that 20% of the power provided—80 MW out of 400 MW—come from renewable energy sources by 2005. The green power requirement will start at 3% in 2001 and increase over time. A request-for-services has been issued to the 13 power providers that have been licensed to sell power in Illinois' deregulated power market.
