July 2003 - Austin Energy announced that Concordia University, located in Austin, TX, has become the first college or university in the nation to subscribe to 100% green power for all of its power needs. The 77 year-old Lutheran school has enrolled in the utility's GreenChoice Program to supply all of the 5.5 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity it uses annually. Concordia will use energy efficiency improvements to offset the additional cost of the green power.
