Wind Power Lights Lady Liberty
Did you know that the Statue of Liberty now receives 100 percent of its electricity from wind power?
The Statue of Liberty won’t be directly hooked up to the windmills. Instead, the General Services Administration, which manages energy purchases for the facility, is purchasing renewable energy credits from its electricity provider. The electricity produced by the wind turbines will offset the same amount the Ellis Island facility uses, enough to power 1,000 homes for a year.
