City of Redmond participates in PSE's Green Power Program

The City of Redmond is participating in Puget Sound Energy's "Green Power" program and has already won a $20,000 grant in the process.  Green Power is the use of renewable energy credits to limit use of energy on the grid.  The City of Redmond is leading a competition with Issaquah and Puyallup for signing up the most residents on the Program.  If Redmond wins, Puget Sound Energy will donate a solar panel.  As part of the Green Power program the city is paying an extra $7,000 to PSE to go 100% carbon neutral using renewable energy for the City Hall building.  City Hall uses 10% of all the energy in the City.
