今天在克利夫兰可持续发展峰会世界自然基金会与我们的第一个城市一起授予克利夫兰和辛辛那提市'明亮的居住地'为居民提供100%可再生电力的奖励。

正如越来越多的公司正在为其运营采购可再生电力一样,许多美国城市正在评估其可再生能源的选择。公司和城市都在购买经过认证的可再生能源信用额度(RECs),证明电力是用可再生能源生产的,甚至可以进一步签订购买新电力购买协议的合同,甚至开始生产自己的可再生能源。

+$Most recently on the city front, the city of Cleveland completed a 'municipal aggregation,' providing 100% Renewable Electricity for 65,000 Cleveland residents. The program covers residents and small businesses that are serviced by Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company. The city is procuring 30% Ohio wind, 20% out of state wind, and 50% hydropower by purchasing RECs. The innovative program saves rate payers money by leveraging the group buying power of residents and small businesses.

+$Community Choice Aggregation programs for renewable energy also exist in Chicago, Evanston, Oak Park, and Normal, IL. It is also under consideration in San Francisco and many other cities and counties in states where aggregation is allowed-- CA, IL, OH, NJ, and MA.
