EPA Purchasing Green Power in Ohio

August 2001 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has negotiated agreements with Community Energy and Com Ed to purchase renewable energy to meet 100% of the energy needs of a 10-story laboratory and office building and two other facilities in Cincinnati, Ohio. Beginning in October, EPA will purchase more than 15 million kWh of renewable energy annually for three years with a three-year renewal option. Community Energy will supply 5% of the power from the 15-MW Mill Run wind farm in Pennsylvania and ComEd will supply the remainder from landfill gas facilities located in Illinois.

With previously announced green power purchases in California, Colorado, Massachusetts, and Washington, EPA will be receiving 9% of its nationwide electricity use from renewable sources by early 2002.
