20% by 2010 Clean Energy Campaign Progress:

The Town of Weston uses 4,727,000 kwh of electricity per year for all municipal facilities. Therefore, their 20% clean energy use target is 945,000 kwh in 2010. To date, they have met approximately 8% of that goal through the mandatory amount as required by the state Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS). Weston has yet to make a voluntary clean energy purchase.
