New York City's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts will be powered entirely by wind energy.

The wind power to support Lincoln Center will be purchased by Green Mountain Energy Co. in the form of renewable energy certificates. The center's electricity usage is approximately 21.6 GWh annually.

Renewable energy will power Avery Fisher Hall (home to the New York Philharmonic), Alice Tully Hall (home to The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center), the Rose Building, the Central Mechanical Plant (which provides heating and cooling to the Metropolitan Opera), the Koch Theater (home of the New York City Ballet) and Lincoln Center Theater.

The Juilliard School has purchased partial renewable energy in the past, but this year, for the first time, joins Lincoln Center in purchasing 100% renewable energy from Green Mountain Energy to power its classrooms, practice rooms, stages and dormitories.
