Georgetown: King of renewable energyGeorgetown: King of renewable energyhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=182782017-11-14T06:00:00Z2017-11-14T20:00:00Z

Georgetown storefronts in downtown​​​GEORGETOWN – When you think of renewable energy in the metro area, Austin likely is the first place that pops into your mind. 

After all, Austin is the largest U.S. city where all municipally-owned buildings and facilities are powered by renewable energy.

However, the Williamson County suburb of Georgetown actually outshines the Capital City when it comes to renewable energy. 

According to Daily Kos​, Georgetown is one of only five U.S. cities that have met the goal of running solely on renewable energy—in Georgetown’s case, wind and solar power.

Currently, Georgetown is the only city in Texas that operates with 100 percent renewable energy. 

At one point, Georgetown was the largest U.S. city in that category, until it was pushed aside by Las Vegas.
