Ohio, Michigan YMCAs Want 100% Renewable Energy

Linda Hardesty

YMCA Energy ManageThe YMCA and JCC of Greater Toledo is collaborating with Clean Green Energy (CGE) for renewable energy at the group’s 35 facilities throughout Michigan and Ohio. The partners are in the process of negotiating site-specific power purchase agreements (PPAs) to fulfill the YMCA’s vision of becoming a net zero operation.

The YMCA’s only obligation will be purchasing the power generated at a discount to its current utility rates.

CGE’s renewable energy offerings include on-site wind turbines, as well as solar, geothermal and biomass energy production. The company also offers Cree LED energy efficiency upgrades. CGE’s energy audit team is currently defining opportunities for the YMCA facilities.

The YMCA Storer Camp in Jackson, Mich., is slated to be the pilot PPA site.

Last year, the 65,000-sq-foot Bedford-Stuyvesant YMCA in the greater New York City area said a lighting retrofit resulted in yearly savings of about 50,000 kWh, equating to a 78 percent cost savings of $10,100.



One comment on “Ohio, Michigan YMCAs Want 100% Renewable Energy

  1. My company can assist various agencies adopt more renewable energy.

    Greetings, I would like to introduce Advanced Alternative Energy Corp.

    Advanced Alternative Energy Corp. (AAEC) is for those who believe in alternative energy as the most viable pathway to a better future for themselves and for humanity.

    AAEC has developed a new concept low-carbon energy technology we’ve designed for serving as the basis for tens of thousands of cleaner renewable energy production systems and energy efficiency improvements across the American landscape and around the world. AAEC’s new concept technology consists of a thermal and fuel gasification-conversion technology that can provide an on demand heat and power source for stand-alone use or to back up solar and wind energy systems and in this way help double the deployment of biomass, coal, waste, solar and wind energy projects in the coming decades.

    We believe humanity needs to repower human activities urgency and with cleaner energy on a much wider scale, and that innovation is our key to a better future and we aspire to offer home and business owners, towns, cities, counties and utilities our new concept low-budget, low-carbon pathway to greater energy efficiency, energy security, cleaner energy and economic development. We believe now that President Obama is moving the climate issue to the front burner will be a big boost to what I’m offering an increasingly stressed planet.

    AAEC’s product lines can be manufactured in the US and in most any locality on any other continent for the local and regional market and exported. This I believe could create licensing opportunities and more jobs and these are among the things I propose offering to an alternative energy hungry world.

    I’m in hopes of finding others who will join and/or support this effort. Contact me for more info.
