EPA Becomes First '100% Green' Federal Agency

September 2006 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has become the first federal agency to purchase renewable energy for 100% of its annual electricity needs. EPA recently signed a 13-month contract with 3 Phases Energy (now serviced by 3Degrees) for more than 100 million kWh of renewable energy certificates (RECs), bringing total agency green power purchases to nearly 300 million kWh. The latest RECs purchase involves more than 190 EPA facilities nationwide and supports the development of wind farms in California, South Dakota, Oklahoma, and Wyoming.
