This is pretty impressive news out of Georgetown, Texas, a community of 54000 people north of Austin, Texas. They have announced a plan for the city to become the first in Texas to be powered entirely by renewable energy – not in some distant decade, but by the end of 2016. Working with Solar power company SunEdison, and wind developer EDF, Georgetown will obtain 150 megawatts of solar energy and enough from a 194 megawatt wind farm to break the tie to fossil fuels for electricity. The driving force – it is going to be cheaper. Check out the story of how Georgetown Texas is going renewable.
