Denton is about to become the biggest U.S. city to run on renewable energy. The city council approved the new plan to install enough solar and wind sources to power everything by 2020. It joins Georgetown as the second city in Texas to make the commitment to sustainable energy.

With a population of over 130,000 people, Denton will become the biggest city in America that can fully run on renewable power. The city owns their own utility company, Denton Municipal Electric, which made it easier to approve the conversion. While households and businesses won’t directly get the greener power, they’ll generate enough renewable energy to offset their consumption rate.
