Oak Ridge becomes green power community


(WBIR) Oak Ridge is officially the EPA's first Green Power Community in the southeast.

The city earned the designation after its campaign kicked off in April. The city got more than 300 customers to make the green power switch to more renewable sources like wind or solar energy. Those customers pay an extra few dollars each month.

Now more than 800 people in the city are green power customers.

Those customers also helped put TVA in the top ten nationally for green power sales.
