November 2000 - On October 26, the Austin City Council decided to expand Austin Energy's GreenChoice program by 56.7 MW through the purchase of additional wind energy. The utility will now supply nearly 100 MW of new renewables to its customers through the program with most of the energy coming from wind. Through the expanded wind power purchase, Austin Energy expects to meet 53% of its projected load growth between 2000-2003 through new renewable energy sources and savings from energy efficiency.
