Illinois: Evanston Offsets 20% with Renewable Wind Power

Constellation NewEnergy has entered into a renewable energy power purchase agreement (PPA) with the City of Evanston in which Constellation NewEnergy will secure approximately 5.5 million kilowatts hours of Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) to offset 20 percent of the City’s electricity usage using clean, renewable wind generation.

Constellation NewEnergy will serve the City’s combined peak demand load of approximately 4,000 kilowatts (19 million kilowatt-hours annually), which is required to power several high-profile municipal facilities including the Robert Crown Ice Arena, Evanston Art and Cultural Centers, the Ecology Center, the municipal water pumps and the City’s parks and recreational facilities. “The City of Evanston is committed to pursuing environmentally friendly solutions that help us become a more energy efficient city and a greener community. Our decision to offset 20 percent of our energy demands from clean wind generation will play a significant role in helping us meet this goal,” said Mayor Lorraine H. Morton, the City of Evanston. Constellation NewEnergy is a subsidiary of Constellation Energy.
