The City of Bainbridge Island announced today that it has received the 2017 Green Power Community of the Year Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The annual awards recognize America’s leading green power users for their commitment and contribution to helping advance the development of the nation’s voluntary green power market.

Bainbridge Island, WA was the only Green Power Community in the Partnership to receive a Leadership Award for using renewable energy in amounts that meet or exceed EPA requirements for residents’ and businesses’ collective green power use. Bainbridge Island is currently using more than 16 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, which is enough green power to meet 8 percent of the community’s purchased electricity use. The City of Bainbridge Island purchases 100% of its electricity for its City facilities through the Puget Sound Energy Green Power program. Green Power Communities distinguish themselves through their green power use, leadership, citizen engagement, renewable energy strategy, and impact on the green power market.

New Rowing Center Construction has begun!

Construction of the new Bainbridge Island Rowing Center is officially underway! A ground breaking ceremony was held on July 1st to start the demolition of the tennis courts which is currently being used as the storage area. This first stage of construction is expected to be finished by the end of summer and will result in a slab that will become the new storage area until the center is done. This is the first step in creating a permanent home for this popular Bainbridge Island sport.

Plans include a 12,000 square foot, two-story building with the ground floor to be used as storage for boats and other equipment as well as a shop and a small bathroom. The second floor will include a large workout/multipurpose room, coaches’ offices, bathrooms and a kitchen.

The center will be owned and operated by the nonprofit group Bainbridge Island Rowing who is continuing to raise money to ensure completion of the project. For more information or to donate, please visit their website.2016_LWT_Girls_8_Nationals 2016_July_1_Groundbreaking_Jen_Pells2
