London is setting a major milestone in going sustainable by the end of this year. Beginning this October, the city’s historic and primary business district will be running on 100 percent renewable energy. A number of corporations will add solar panels to their buildings, with others investing in these alternative sources.

The City of London Corporation announced last week on new plans to fully source their energy in sustainable methods. Not to be confused with the informal use of “the city of London,” this specific area is the central business district of London. It’s often referred to as the “City” or the “Square Mile,” though specific boundaries were changed in 1994 to exactly 1.12 square miles.
