Renewable Wind Energy
Three 100 kWh wind turbines power our facilities in Lafayette with renewable energy. The $2.18 million project was funded with a 2009 TIGGER award from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The goal of the TIGGER program is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions produced by public transit systems.
As of April 2012, the program has generated the following results:
Go Green. Save Green.
CityBus riders save tons of carbon annually by riding the bus instead of driving in cars. How much carbon will you save?
Riding CityBus is also economically sustainable. The average transit rider saves more than $10,000 annually over the costs of car ownership.
