The Empire State Building is Now 100% Powered By Wind

The Empire State Building is now run entirely by wind energy. Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. which owns the 102-story skyscraper along with 13 other office buildings, signed a three-year contract with Green Mountain Energy to power its entire real estate portfolio throughout New York and Connecticut with renewable wind electricity.

According to the federal EPA, it made the company the nation’s largest 100% user of green power in real estate.

Green Mountain Energy was awarded the electricity contract after a bid process that involved multiple electricity providers and is expected to result in more than $800,000 in savings to ESRT for the first year of the contract.
