Austin Moves To 100% Renewable Energy


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 Green Choice 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.
