This is what America's eco city of the future looks like
Georgetown mayor Dale Ross is ‘a good little Republican’ – but ever since his city weaned itself off fossil fuels, he has become a hero to environmentalists
by Tom Dart in Georgetown, Texas - The Guardian
When the caller said he worked for Harry Reid and the former Senate majority leader wanted a word, Dale Ross assumed it was a joke. “OK, which of my buddies are messing with me today?” he wondered.
He shouldn’t have been so surprised. Ross is the mayor of Georgetown, population 65,000, and he has become a minor celebrity in environmental circles as a result of a pioneering decision in 2015 to get all the city’s electricity from renewable sources.
Georgetown’s location in oil-and-gas-centric Texas and Ross’s politics add to the strangeness of the tale. The mayor is a staunch Republican at a time when a Republican president – and his Environmental Protection Agency administrator – reject the scientific consensus on climate change and are trying to revive the declining coal industry.
Ross has appeared in a National Geographic documentary, a forthcoming film about clean energy for HBO directed by James Redford (son of Robert) and in this year’s follow-up to An Inconvenient Truth, which saw the advocate and former vice-president Al Gore visit Georgetown.
The day after we met at city hall, just off Georgetown’s charming main square, Ross was set to fly to Utah to introduce a screening of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. Then it was on to Las Vegas to reunite with Gore, a fellow speaker at Friday’s National Clean Energy Summit, an event co-hosted by Reid, a Democrat from Nevada. Next week, a conference in Oakland, California. Next month, a green energy panel in Nova Scotia.
“You should see the fan mail that I get, especially with the movies,” Ross grinned. The 58-year-old said the decision to follow the lead of Burlington, Vermont – the first US city to run solely on renewable energy – was not the product of liberal do-gooder vapours wafting up Interstate 35 from nearby Austin. It was based on cold-eyed pragmatism, the fruit of the kind of careful numerical analysis he performs in his day job as a certified public accountant.
“The revolution is here,” he said. “And I’m a good little Republican, a rightwing fiscal conservative, but when it comes to making decisions based on facts, that’s what we do.”
The facts, Ross said, are that when Georgetown negotiated power supply deals the cost was about the same between natural gas and wind and solar, but the natural gas option would provide only a seven-year guaranteed contract whereas 20-25 year proposals were on the table from renewable providers.
Georgetown officials decided to lock in a long-term rate to eliminate price volatility, mindful of the risk that future government actions might send fossil fuel costs soaring.
Prices in the city, Ross said, have declined from 11.4¢ per kilowatt hour in 2008 to 8.5¢ this year. Georgetown sources most of its power from a wind farm 500 miles away in Amarillo and will get solar energy from a farm in west Texas that is expected to be finished next June, meaning the city can attain its 100% renewable goal even when the wind isn’t blowing. This year, Ross said, the tally is about 90%, down from 100% in 2016.
“I think it’s a big step for Texas, for Georgetown,” said Christian Soeffker, who runs a toy shop on the square. “We just like the idea of being in a town that is in some ways special because we’ve got all that green energy.”
Georgetown makes headlines not only because so few US cities run entirely on renewables, but because it has a conservative mayor willing to make compromises and fraternise with high-profile Democrats in a hyper-partisan era where climate change is one of the most divisive subjects.
“How is anybody going to compete with wind and solar?” said Ross, who has ordered an electric-powered BMW scooter from California and plans to fit solar panels at his home and office.
All the same, he voted for coal’s biggest champion in last November’s presidential election – Trump was “like, my eighth or ninth choice” in the primary, he said – and went to his inauguration, which he said was “phenomenal”, even if it cost $700 for a basic hotel room. His support is not unquestioning, though.
“When Trump was campaigning he was talking about clean coal and we’re going to bring coal jobs back? That is a mirage, that is not going to happen,” he said. “Coal is one of the most expensive forms of fossil fuels to produce. And those jobs are never going to come back, ever. They’re done.”
As for any policies the federal government might enact to boost the coal industry, such as the decision announced on Tuesday to scrap the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan?
“Isn’t that sort of like putting a Band-Aid on somebody that has terminal cancer?” Ross said. “I’m not the smartest guy in the room but it’s not that complicated, OK? How’s fossil fuels going to compete in the next five years? They’re not going to be able to compete.”
Texas is the US leader in wind energy capacity, even as many of its politicians maintain absolute fealty to fossil fuels that are a key economic driver and still the supplier of most of the state’s electricity. It has lagged behind other states in solar capacity but is starting to realise its potential.
“We have so much area in Texas that’s ideal for solar,” said Joey Romano, a 35-year-old with a small solar farm 50 miles west of downtown Houston. “Solar and wind, unsubsidised, today already can compete with coal,” he said.
Local Sun has about 100 residential customers. Completed at the end of 2015, the farm is located in a rural county that gave Trump 79% of the vote. But Romano said local officials recognised the potential for jobs and revenue and were happy to help the project get off the ground. Beehives stand among the 15,000 panels.
“We call the programme ‘farm-to-market solar energy’,” Romano said, at his office in central Houston.
Local Sun is a boutique operation in partnership with MP2 Energy, a retail company owned by Shell, and it is designed to attract those willing to pay a small premium for an eco-conscious local product, much as food shoppers might spend a little more for organic groceries.
However modest, its very existence feels like a significant marker in a city that is known as America’s oil and gas capital but is in fact the nation’s biggest municipal user of green power.
On the other hand, environmental activists worry that solar’s growth will be stunted in Texas and across the country if, as appears likely, the Trump White House imposes prohibitive tariffs on imported solar panels.
“They may harm thousands of installation jobs in favour of a few hundred manufacturing jobs, so that could hurt,” said Jim Marston of the Environmental Defense Fund, who believes renewable energy will thrive even if federal incentives end and barriers are erected.
“You can’t stop the technology. It’s too good, the prices are too good, and people want it,” he said.
Ross agrees that market forces will prevail. On Friday, the day of the clean energy summit, Texas’s largest electricity producer announced it would close two more coal-fuelled power plants in the state.
Luminant cited challenging economic conditions including low wholesale and natural gas prices and the growth of renewables. A week earlier, the company said that in January it will retire a large coal-powered plant in east Texas.
“We were on the frontier of the fossil fuel business, oil and gas,” Ross said. “And now Texas again is on the frontier of the new energy that’s going to be the future.”

ADA — There’s a $4.2 billion economic argument to be made for encouraging wind energy in Ohio, and state Sen. Cliff Hite plans to use it to convince Republicans in the Legislature to ease the rules on wind turbine location.
That’s the amount of potential investment in Ohio if the state’s wind turbine setback rules “were reasonable,” Hite, R-Findlay, said Thursday.
He said current law, either “intentionally or unintentionally,” slowed the expansion of wind farms in the state.
In 2014, Hite said, the Ohio General Assembly nearly tripled the required distance between wind turbines and property lines to about 1,300 feet, or nearly a quarter-mile. He said there was no debate or opportunity for public input.
“This setback functions as a moratorium on wind project development,” Hite said. “It prevents businesses with an interest in gaining access to and investing in wind energy in Ohio from doing so.”
On Thursday, Hite announced he will introduce a bill in the Ohio Senate which would reduce required setbacks from property lines by more than half. Hite said the bill already has good support in the Senate, and growing support in the Ohio House.
The announcement was made at EDP Renewables’ Hog Creek Wind Farm on Washington Township Road 20 in Hardin County. EDP Renewables is headquartered in Indianapolis.
When in full operation, the $112 million Hog Creek Wind Farm will consist of 30 wind turbines and will generate enough energy to power more than 19,000 homes. Construction of the turbines should be complete by the end of the year.
The farm will employ seven permanent workers. The median annual salary of a wind technician is $51,500.
The wind farm will pay an estimated $600,000 in local property taxes each year, and pay participating landowners more than $10 million over 30 years.
Hog Creek Wind Farm is a grandfathered development, plotted before the 2014 state restrictions.
In all, EDP Renewables has invested $319 million in Ohio, with two operating wind farms in Paulding County. It paid $4.5 million in taxes to local governments through 2016. More than $6.2 million has been paid to Ohio landowners through 2016.
Hite’s legislation, Senate Bill 188, would move the property line setback to a distance of 1.2 times the height of the turbine, or about 600 feet. That’s about 50 feet further than the original 2010 law. The new rule would also restore a setback from homes of about 1,400 feet, a provision not included in current law.
Hite said in 2010, there were 12 applications for wind farms in Ohio, but since 2014, there have been none.
He said the bill strikes a “proper balance, protecting the rights of both participating and non-participating landowners and will allow responsible wind development to move forward.”
On Thursday, Hite said his work in the Senate is about ensuring a better future for Ohioans, as he held up a picture of his four granddaughters. He said working to reduce the nation’s carbon footprint is the right thing to do, and is not just an issue of “that other party.”
President Barack Obama built nearly $90 billion worth of incentives for green energy development into his economic stimulus plan during his first term.
Conserving the environment, improving the economy, and generating money for government are all conservative ideas, Hite said.
“I think this is a Republican idea,” he said. “Our energy portfolio should be broad.”
Ryan Brown, executive vice president of EDP Renewables North America, Eastern Region and Canada, said his company is eager to make additional investments in Ohio.
“EDP applauds those who are working to ease Ohio’s onerous siting regulations, which, if amended, would encourage more wind development in the state,” Brown said.
CONSTRUCTION. Boréal érige la première éolienne de 3,2 mégawatts au cours de la première semaine de septembre.

La mise en service de l’ensemble des éoliennes est toujours prévue à la fin de l’année 2017. «Il reste encore beaucoup de montage», avance tout de même Viviane Maraghi, Directrice du développement du promoteur RES.
Les composantes des éoliennes arrivent depuis quelques semaines sur le site du mont Sainte-Marguerite. «Nous avons besoin de l’ensemble des pièces (mats, pales, nacelle et moyeu) dans un certain ordre pour que les quatre grues principales les assemblent», montre Viviane Maraghi. Les équipes se relaient de jour, de soir et de fin de semaine pour entrer dans les temps prescrits, sans quoi le promoteur risque des frais de plusieurs milliers de dollars par jour de retard.
Les 46 éoliennes doivent être en opération dans les prochains trois mois, un rythme d’environ une éolienne tous les trois jours.
Les quatre parties du mat arrivent de Matane, les nacelles sont chargées sur des camions depuis le port de Bécancour.
Chaque jour, une composante parvient par le nord (route 216, Saint-Sylvestre) ou par le sud (route 112, Tring-Jonction). Les bases des éoliennes, une partie des pales et des moyeux sont presque toutes arrivés au chantier dans le secteur de Tring-Jonction.
À terme le parc éolien du Mont Sainte-Marguerite produira 147,2 MW d’énergie pouvant alimenter près de 28 000 foyers. Il s’agit d’un des derniers appels d’offres lancé par Hydro-Québec. Le gouvernement du Québec, principal actionnaire d’Hydro-Québec, ne prévoit pas augmenter la production d’énergie éolienne au cours des prochaines années, à moins d’une baisse des surplus d’énergie de la société d’État.
Les chemins d'accès aux éoliennes sont tous construits et pratiquement 50% du réseau collecteur est installé. Le poste de raccordement est presque terminé et Hydro-Québec TransÉnergie a débuté ses travaux.
