Pennsylvania Doubles Green Power Purchase

August 2006 - The state of Pennsylvania has doubled the size of its green power purchase for state facilities. Under a two-year contract modification with Community Energy, Inc., the state will buy 200 million kWh of renewable electricity per year generated from wind (40%) and hydropower (60%) resources at a premium of 0.34¢/kWh over standard electricity rates. With the purchase, which equates to 20% of state government electricity use, Pennsylvania ranks as the largest purchaser of renewable energy among U.S. states, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership.
