Long Island Communities Purchasing Green Power

April 2005 - Six Long Island municipalities in Suffolk County are purchasing more than 8 million kWh of wind energy annually through the LIPA Green Choice Program in partnership with Community Energy, Inc. Through the program, the communities of Southold, East Hampton, Riverhead, and Shelter Island, and both the Town of Southampton and Village of Southampton are using the green power to meet some or all of their municipal electricity needs. In addition, both the Suffolk County and Nassau County legislatures recently passed legislation calling for the counties to purchase up to 50% of their future electricity needs from renewable energy sources, subject to cost caps.
