New EPA Facility to Use Green Power

December 2005 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has entered into a three-year contract to purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs) to cover 100% of the electricity needs of its new Potomac Yards buildings in Arlington, VA, and its headquarters satellite facilities. Under the contract with 3 Phases Energy (now serviced by 3Degrees), EPA will purchase 12.45 million kWh of RECs derived from new wind facilities in Nebraska, Wyoming, Minnesota, and Oklahoma. With this purchase, EPA now procures green power for 85% of its electricity needs nationwide.
