Union Station goes to all-wind power

Washington’s Union Station has signed a three-year contract with Herndon, Va.-based Washington Gas Energy Services to receive 100 percent of its electricity from wind power.

Previously, the railroad station received 50 percent of its electricity from WGES CleanSteps WindPower. Under the new agreement, Union Station will transition to 100 percent wind power for its electricity load of 18,943,964 kilowatt hours annually.

“Union Station’s switch to wind energy through Washington Gas Energy Services is an important milestone in its history and a great opportunity to inform visitors about wind energy’s viability for businesses of all sizes,” said Roy Staeck, Union Station’s vice president of business development.
