Pennsylvania Colleges Expand Wind Purchases

April 2005 - The Pennsylvania Consortium for Interdisciplinary Environmental Policy (PCIEP), in partnership with wind energy marketer Community Energy, Inc. (CEI), announced that nine Pennsylvania-based colleges and universities have increased their wind energy purchase commitments. To date, 34 PCIEP members are collectively purchasing 92.2 million kWh of wind energy, which constitutes the largest non-governmental aggregated commitment to wind power in the United States.

Schools that have recently increased their purchases as part of the Consortium's "Getting to 10% Wind" campaign include: Eastern University, which now purchases wind energy equivalent to 32% of its electricity usage, Dickinson College (12%), the University of Pennsylvania (10%), Juniata College (10%), Allegheny College (10%), Chatham College (10%), Duquesne University (10%), Keystone College (10%), and Mercyhurst College (10%).

Other schools purchasing wind energy include Drexel University (8%), Franklin & Marshall College (7%), Carnegie Mellon University (6%), Gettysburg College (5%), and Penn State University (5%).
