About Santa Clara Green Power

Launched in 2004, Santa Clara Green Power’s renewable mix is made up of 100% solar generated in the Western United States with at least 80% of that generation coming from California and 15% of the total supply coming from solar panels on California schools — exemplifying our commitment to the environment and to the community.  Thanks to the support from the entire community – city government, residents, and both our large and small businesses, Santa Clara has been recognized as one of the top five EPA Green Power Communities in the country.
