Philadelphia Becomes Newest U.S. EPA Green Power Community Partner

June 2012 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has welcomed Philadelphia as a new member of the Green Power Communities initiative, which includes towns and cities across the United States who buy green power generated by solar, wind, geothermal, biogas, and low-impact hydropower resources. Currently, Green Power Communities collectively purchase a total of more than 4.2 billion kilowatt-hours of renewable electricity each year.

In 2006, Philadelphia joined the EPA Green Power Partnership and has pledged that 20 percent of the electricity consumed by the city will come from renewable sources by the year 2015. The city's municipal operations have already met this goal, using more than 127 million kilowatt-hours of green power.
