Lacey, Washington was named a Green Power Community in 2007, becoming the second such community in the state and the twelfth in the nation. Situated on the southern tip of Puget Sound in the shadow of Mount Rainier, Lacey is graced with sparkling lakes and saltwater, densely-forested parklands, miles of hiking and biking trails, and an adjoining 3,700-acre national wildlife refuge. Amidst such environmental magnificence, it’s little wonder residents and businesses feel a natural affinity for green power use.
In addition to the renewable energy utilized by Lacey’s residents and businesses, the community meets all electrical needs for its municipal buildings (including city hall, the library, community center, senior center, museum and public works operations center) as well as its water, reclaimed water, wastewater and stormwater utilities, all parks and recreation facilities, and more than 3,000 streetlights and traffic signals through the exclusive use of green power.
