 Wind, Solar to Power All of Santa Monica's Municipal Operations

The city of Santa Monica, California signed a contract for all of its municipal operations to be supplied by 100 percent renewable energy.
 
The contract covers more than 500 city-owned Direct Access eligible accounts and approximately 26,000 megawatt-hours of annual consumption beginning this month. According to city reports, buying electricity using Direct Access saved Santa Monica more than a half of a million dollars in 2013.
 
The contract can be renewed for up to four additional years. The renewable energy mix will consist mainly of wind and solar generated in the state.
