Session 1: 100% Renewables in a City Near You - This summer Georgetown began receiving power from a solar farm in West Texas. The solar farm, in conjunction with a wind farm in the Texas Panhandle, makes Georgetown one of the few cities in the U.S. with 100 percent renewable energy. The decision to go with renewables was predominantly a financial one, but the City has been fortunate to receive coverage from across the world regarding our energy portfolio.
 
Session 2: Commercial & Industrial Energy Procurement of Renewable Energy - In 2016, MGM Resorts completed a bold and ambitious process to separate from its local electric utility in Las Vegas and enter the wholesale power market. This action set an industry trend, enabled MGM Resorts to control its own course of energy procurement, and paved the way to one of the largest private solar development partnerships in the Country.
