Oak Park retains top green ranking

Oak Park remains in first place for percentage of clean power purchased after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently updated rankings among its Green Power Communities. The Village is ahead of Aurora here in Illinois, as well as seven Green Communities in California. In terms of green power kilowatt usage, Oak Park is ranked seventh among 45 cities. Last year, the USEPA gave Oak Park its Green Power Community award in recognition of purchasing 100-percent renewable energy credits for the Community Choice Aggregation program, which has saved residents more than $3.4 million since it was launched in January 2012.
