Connecticut Among Top Green Power Purchasers

March 2009 - Connecticut’s Governor M. Jodi Rell announced that the state will purchase more than 98 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power this year, making Connecticut one of only three states to be placed on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) top 50 list of national Green Power Partners. The renewable energy purchased is equivalent to 17 percent of the total electricity used in the state’s facilities. Connecticut’s renewable energy purchase is in support of Governor Rell’s Energy Vision for a Cleaner, Greener State, which set a goal of increasing the percentage of clean, renewable energy consumed by state government from all sources to 20 percent by the year 2020.
