Forest County Potawatomi Community Generating 55 Million kWh of Green Power Annually

July 2014 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership, a voluntary program that encourages organizations to use renewable energy in order to limit the environmental impacts associated with fossil fuel use, recognized the Forest County Potawatomi Community for using 105% renewable energy and generating more than 55 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of power annually from renewables. With funding and technical assistance from DOE, the Tribe has completed numerous renewable energy projects, including a 30-kilowatt (kW) rooftop PV array that powers the Tribe's administration building in Milwaukee, WI; a 2-megawatt anaerobic digester and biogas generation facility that converts food waste into electricity to power 1,500 homes; an LED-lighting project at the Tribe's parking facilities that reduced electricity use by more than 47%; energy efficiency upgrades to the Tribe’s Wunder Hall building (which is expected to save the Tribe more than 50% on energy costs); and energy audits of the Tribe’s Carter Hotel and Casino to identify potential energy savings.
