Connecticut DEP Commits to 100% Green Power

November 2005 - The Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced a commitment to purchase renewable energy for all its electricity needs. Under the agreement, DEP facilities will collectively purchase 7.6 million kWh of renewable energy annually through the CTCleanEnergyOptions program, adding an estimated $125,000, or about 10%, to the department's annual electric bill. The purchase will be split evenly between the two clean energy suppliers participating in the program, Community Energy and Sterling Planet.

The DEP purchase represents the largest institutional clean energy purchase since the CTCleanEnergyOptions program was unveiled in April 2005, and will help the state achieve its 20% renewable electricity purchase goal for state agencies and universities for 2010. To date, about 5,500 Connecticut customers have enrolled in the program.
