Renewable Choice Energy reports that the City of Boston has purchased 28,000 wind-generated renewable energy credits (RECs) from the Colorado-based firm for fiscal year 2013, 33% more than were purchased in the prior year.

"The City of Boston is committed to leading by example to reduce greenhouse gas emissions," says Mayor Thomas M. Menino. "Purchasing renewable energy credits is one of our many strategies to reduce the city’s carbon footprint.”

According to Renewable Energy Choice, the RECs purchased by the City are sourced from 100% U.S. wind power facilities and certified by Green-e Energy, a leading U.S. certification program for renewable energy. The City has been purchasing green power in the form of RECs for the past seven years.
