PA Plans to Expand Green Power Purchases

June 2008 - Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell announced that he has directed the state's Department of General Services to increase the commonwealth's purchases of renewable energy to 50% of the state's electricity needs from the current level of 30%. To achieve the 50% target, the state would need to purchase more than 500 million kWh of renewable energy annually. Pennsylvania is currently the largest state purchaser of green power. The Governor also set a goal of reducing energy consumption in state buildings by 10% by 2010 in addition to the 10% reduction in energy usage achieved in 2006.
