Cincinnati reigns green supreme!
According to Site Selection, the City of Cincinnati has established itself as the top metropolitan green leader in the United States and Ohio is ranked as the third most green state!
The good news continues!
Recently, Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley agreed to power the Queen City’s municipal buildings with 100 percent renewable energy through at least the year 2021.
Not only will this deal save the city over $100,000 per year, it also is an investment in our community and the environment. In an effort to have Cincinnati 100 percent solar powered by 2035, Cranley also agreed to add on 25 MW of solar panels throughout the city. Installation of these panels will begin in 2019.
Site Selection says Cincinnati has surpassed other metro areas such as Boston, Seattle, Cleveland and Chicago in being “green,” in part because of Procter & Gamble’s efforts to be sustainable as well as the University of Cincinnati’s six LEED-certified buildings. Procter & Gamble strives to eliminate waste at all of its manufacturing plants and its Cincinnati headquarters, while UC continues to make strides toward a LEED-Gold certification.
With solar leaders like the city of Cincinnati, GE, P&G, the Cincinnati Zoo, and YOU, it’s easy to see why Cincinnati ranks #1 in sustainability!
