Tennessee State Parks Buy Green Power

Governor Phil Bredesen announced plans for all state parks in Tennessee to purchase renewable energy, where available. Forty-four of the 54 state parks have access to green power through the Tennessee Valley Authority's Green Power Switch program and have committed to collectively purchase nearly 2.1 million kWh annually. The combined park purchases will cost $55,152 annually but will be offset by more than $190,000 in expected savings achieved through energy efficiency measures, such as lighting and cooling improvements.

The State of Tennessee also purchases green power for the Executive Residence and state buildings in downtown Nashville. Supporting greater use of renewable energy was a recommendation of the Governor's Interagency Workgroup on Air Quality.
