to Summary by DSIRE
By an executive order from the Mayor's Office, City of Lansing facilities are now required to procure 10% of their energy consumption from renewable sources by 2010, escalating to 15% in 2015 and 20% in 2020. This green power purchasing policy is part of a broader initiative designed to reduce the contribution that city facilities make to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. Several additional provisions apart from green power procurement are contained in the order, among them a goal of reducing energy use in city facilities by 10% as soon as it is practical and mandates that city facilities purchase EPA Energy Star certified appliances and hybrid/renewable fuel vehicles unless an otherwise demonstrable need exists.
