The San Jose-Santa Clara Pollution Control Plant – one of 8 California organizations to be recognized by the EPA – generates 56 percent green power from biogas.
Green power – from renewable resources such as solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, biogas, and low-impact hydropower – generates less pollution than conventional power and produces no net increase in greenhouse gas emissions. The EPA’s Green Power Partnership works with over 1,100 partner organizations – Fortune 500 companies, local, state and federal governments, and a growing number of colleges and universities – to voluntarily purchase green power to reduce the environmental impacts of conventional electricity use.
Once again, San Jose-Santa Clara County have raised the bar for their commitment to sustainability. Wonder what they’ll do next?
