The City of Boston joined the Green Power Partnership in 2005 and is currently purchasing 28 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of wind-generated green power. “I'm proud that Boston is among the largest local government purchasers in New England," Mayor Thomas M. Menino said. " Our green power purchase and solar installations demonstrates our commitment to clean energy strategies that improve our environment and the quality of life in all of our neighborhoods." The City of Boston is also a leader in promoting renewable energy generation through its Renew Boston Solar program. Currently there is 10.4 MW of solar installed citywide, 610 kW of which is installed on the City of Boston's own municipal buildings. The City of Boston continues to advance renewable energy installations in Boston and expects to make continued progress in 2013 toward meeting Mayor Menino's goal of 25 MW of solar power installed by 2015.
