U.S. Cities & Counties Turn To Renewables

U.S. cities and counties have signed procurement deals for nearly 8.3 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy since 2015, the new Local Government Renewables Action Tracker resource showed on Wednesday.

 

The new resource, launched by the American Cities Climate Challenge Renewables Accelerator, showed that local governments across the United States signed a total of 335 deals to procure 8.28 GW of renewable energy over the last five years, which is more than the total energy generation capacity of Alaska, Hawaii, Rhode Island, and Vermont combined, World Resources Institute said in a statement today.

 

According to the tracker, last year was the best year so far in terms of capacity, with 2.63 GW of deals announced. Since 2015, the largest number of deals that cities and counties have announced were for off-site physical power purchase agreements (PPAs), with 131 in total, followed by 116 deals for community solar power, and on-site solar with 74 transactions. Texas and California were home to the biggest capacity deals of local governments, according to the tracker.

    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    Nevertheless think about if you added some great visuals or video
    clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with pics and clips, this website could definitely
    be one of the best in its field. Great blog!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted
    to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
    it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements
    would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought
    I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos

    You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but
    I to find this topic to be actually something that I think I
    might never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely large for me.
    I am having a look forward to your subsequent publish, I will attempt to
    get the dangle of it!
