The City of Gaithersburg (MD) has always taken a leadership position and maintained a strong commitment to sustainability and the environment. A major strategic direction is to create a sustainable quality of life for residents and the community with a focus on reducing our carbon footprint. Creating a sustainable way of life to benefit the City residents and community is a core value that is ingrained in our actions and plans. Lessening our environmental impact to preserve and protect for the future is an essential part of the character of our City. In keeping with this goal, the City has committed to the purchase of renewable energy certificates (RECs) generated from wind energy to offset a portion of the municipal usage of electricity (30%).
