EPA Expands Purchase for RTP

January 2005 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has entered into a three-year agreement with Unicoi Energy Services to purchase 100 million kWh of renewable energy certificates (RECs) annually for its Research Triangle Park (RTP) complex in North Carolina. The RECs will be sourced from a pulp and paper plant using biomass resources in Georgia. The contract nearly triples the size of previous purchases for the RTP complex and represents the largest green power purchase yet by EPA, which now purchases 220 million kWh of green power annually for its facilities nationwide—enough to meet about 78% of the agency's total electricity needs.
