Incentive/Summary Under the Austin Climate Protection Plan, …
Under the Austin Climate Protection Plan, the City Council has set numerous goals for renewable energy, energy efficiency, and carbon emission reductions with the overall goal of making Austin a national leader in local climate change mitigation policy. Included in this larger goal is a goal of powering all city facilities with renewable energy by 2012. According to the [ EPA Green Power Partners], the city of Austin procures 100% of its electricity from green power (374,086,079 kilowatt hours). Interestingly, the Austin Independent School District [ (AISD)] is one of the largest subscribers to the Austin Energy [ GreenChoice program] since 2003, when it made a commitment to purchase 30% of its electricity from renewable sources, totaling 45,000-48,000 MWh annually. According to the [ October 2012 EPA Green Power Partner update], the AISD's most recent renewable energy purchase of 20,080 MWh comprises 13% of its total electricity consumption, and ranks 2nd nationally among K-12 school purchases. In comparison, the City of Austin's renewable energy purchase ranks 3rd nationally. As an independent entity, the AISD green power purchases are separate from those made by the city of Austin and the AISD is not governed by the City municipal facility goal.
