Catholic University to Buy Green Power

August 2002 - The Catholic University of America, based in Washington D.C., announced that it has entered into an agreement with Washington Gas Energy Services to purchase wind energy to meet 12% of its electricity needs for five years. The power will come from the 66-MW Mountaineer Wind Energy Center—currently under construction in West Virginia—under a wholesale supply agreement with Community Energy. The purchase is equivalent to the entire annual output of one, 1.5-MW wind turbine.

WGES and Community Energy are launching a campaign to offer wind-generated power to institutions, businesses and residential consumers throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
