In 2014 Burlington, Vermont became the first city in the United States to run on 100% Renewable Energy. But how do they actually do it? What’s their secret?

This place is cool af, and I love cities like this

Costa Rica has been living with renewable energy for more than a year.

It is not very green it is releasing a lot of CO2. Twin Falls ID has been existed with renewable resource for more then 50yrs. Burlington suxs.

Solar & wind energy is green,clean energy

" New Trees absorb more carbon than old trees "

I thought hydro was no longer considered renewable?

One nuke plant could power almost the entire state

A city that can never grow because you don't have enough power. Chicago over a million people. What are these people doing to the fish with that hydro power?
Sebastian Altman
@5:58 Is that true? Younger trees soak up more carbon than older trees? What about that older and therefore larger trees sequester more carbon, and so the offset is negligible? I would think that larger trees can soak up more carbon because they have more surface area, volume, cells, and resources to soak up that carbon. Can I please get a citation or source for this statement?

cool

According to Wikipedia Burlington only has about 43,000 people - a reasonably sized town, not a city. Try this with a population of 1million.

Incredible city

Hydro has powered towns and cities for hundreds of years. The problem is when you say "100%" because you're then talking about the generators, steel framed buildings, copper wires to run electricity, etc.
Bob Bresnahan
This story is why I stopped talking about "renewable" energy. The reason is that carbon emissions are what we should be limiting, It's a case of being 100% renewable accurately getting in the way of eliminating carbon emissions from electricity. Remember, as we transition to EVs we'll have greater demand for electrical power plants. We'll see how much it plays out to, but it could be a lot.

i think with the tesla solar tiles those houses can make use of their roof spaces more efficiently and with the extra solar panel will be more then enough for a family unit of 4. i think only on peak summer and winter times they will only need to draw power from the grid cuz of AC and heaters . but i think AC and heaters are also getting more efficient

New trees don’t absorb more carbon than older trees. New *forests* do, but that benefit is lost from selective cutting.
Tony Chalmers
Why can't they reuse the gas and waste that comes out.
Eduardo Gouvea
If i get it right they are self sufficient, for me it is also a pro.
Daniel Ly
I don’t know if burning wood chips counts as green energy.
Tom Kelly
I would love to see Stan Meyers technology or the stuff that powers UFO's or Searl Effect generators to power the world. The internal combustion engine needs to be replaced and it looks like batteries will do it but still I want to see some real sci-fi energy production to come online. I am ready to kick the oil habit and the constant need for fuel or more energy.

The bonds between atoms obviously hold massive amounts of power and when they are split we get nuclear bombs but short of that there must be a far less violent way to tap into that unlimited source of energy. Nuclear energy is fine but I don't know I am still convinced that by toying with radio frequencies, sound or magnetic energy we could hit that zero point jackpot and unleash tremendous amounts of safe, peaceful energy that can last very close to forever.

For now though I am happy with my solar panels and batteries, off grid here in Canada
