Union Station in Washington, D.C., has signed a three-year contract with Washington Gas Energy Services to power its operations with 100% wind energy through the WGES CleanSteps WindPower program. The transportation hub previously used 50% WGES CleanSteps WindPower for its electricity needs.

"Reducing our environmental impact is a key priority for Union Station, and using renewable wind energy greatly aids us in decreasing our carbon footprint," says Roy Staeck, vice president of business development for Union Station. "As one of the most- visited tourist destinations in the world, Union Station’s switch to wind energy through Washington Gas Energy Services is an important milestone in its history and a great opportunity to inform visitors about wind energy’s viability for businesses of all sizes."
