In 2007, your Austin area movers
were among the many ecstatic local residents excited for a big change when it was declared that all city-owned facilities would make the permanent switch to renewable energy. For all who have patiently awaited the dawn of a new more environmentally conscious day in Austin, you will be happy to know that the clean energy movement begins this weekend! Starting on October first, civic departments will no longer purchase non-renewable energy, but will instead receive all electricity from Austin Energy’s GreenChoice program. Big changes are around the corner as up until currently, more than eighty percent of Austin’s city buildings had yet to make the move over to renewable energy.
It will be a costly venture for Austin, but the transition will make Austin the largest city to rely solely on renewable energy for city-funded electricity
. Roughly estimated at seven million dollars per year, the cost of Austin’s GreenChoice program won’t be cheap, but the switch is the only logical move for the world’s leading city in protecting the environment.
One of many long-term goals behind Austin Energy’s GreenChoice program is complete and total discontinuance of emissions resulting from city-owned facilities by the year 2020. Your Austin moving experts
are proud to be doing business in the world’s leading city for global protection and preservation!
