This summer, Georgetown became the largest U.S. city to source 100 pct of its energy needs from renewables. The city purchases 144 MWh from the EDF Renewable Energy's Spinning Spur 3 wind farm near Amarillo, and 150 MWh from the NRG Energy's Buckthorn solar plant in West Texas.
The Bloomberg U.S. Mayors Challenge is a year-long competition under which city leaders from across the country develop proposals that would reinvent a city's practices on climate change and other issues.
