Aspen’s Just The Third U.S. City To Run 100 Percent On Renewables

Aspen is now the third U.S. city running 100 percent on renewable energy. Only Burlington, Vermont, and Greensburg, Kansas, have also managed a complete switch. The Aspen Times reports the mountain community is now powered by hydro, wind, geothermal and burning gas from landfills. Signing a contract with a wholesale energy provider in Nebraska was the final step for the city to become free of fossil fuels.
