The Empire State Building Goes Green

One of the worlds largest buildings, The Empire State Building, has recently become the largest buyer of green renewable wind power. Throughout the next couple years, it will be using aproximatley 100 million kWh of wind energy. From now on, the building will be 100% wind powered! The Empire State Building has also insulated all 6,500 windows with a special type of glass to enhance energy savings. $13.2 million was spent on these energy efficient repairs, but it will save tons of money. This will help reduce the dealdly footprint of cabon emmisons from New York City. The renewable energy movement will help to set an example for other landlords to promote a cleaner, energy saving city. Sources:
