Burlington, Vermont Wins The Golden Ring-100% Powered Renewable

Jake Richardson posted September, 2014 about Burlington and its Achievement.

Here is just a small excerpt of what he had to say!

Wind, water and biomass are providing all of Burlington’s electricity, and this city is the largest in Vermont.
So, critics can’t say, “It’s just a little village, probably has 800 people, that’s not feasible anywhere else.”
However, the population of Burlington is about 42,000.
It’s not a large city by any means, but it also is not a tiny town where adding some solar and one wind turbine would cover everyone’s electricity.

Not to be outdone, Good News Network Featured Burlington in a superb write up on February 4, 2015.

Using a combination of old water hydroelectric, Solar Panels and Wind. Of course they are getting some flack. Some people say they are not coming clean, because a lot of their energy is coming from the old but productive hydroelectric plants that are run by the force of water from streams to run big turbines that produce electricity. Even if they are old, they are still Green!
