Overview

No votes yet

Binghamton Federal Building is the first federal facility in the country to be powered entirely by wind-generated electricity. Since 2002, 100% of the building's electricity needs (approximately 500,000 kWh per year) has been supplied by new "wind farms" recently opened in upstate New York. Compared to the average generation mix of a spot market purchase, the Binghamton Federal Building wind purchase will annually offset approximately 772,000 pounds of carbon dioxide, a leading cause of global warming. The emissions reductions are equivalent to planting over 52,000 trees each year.

The Binghamton Federal Building is also notable for its historical significance. Built in 1935, it is listed on the National Register as a part of the State Street/Henry Street Historic Distric.
