Federal Green Power Purchasing Soars

September 2003 - The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) reports that federal purchases of green power have surged in recent months. Over the last year, federal purchases increased from 125 million kWh to more than 300 million kWh—the Department of Defense alone has at least 19 agreements to purchase renewable energy or renewable energy credits, totaling approximately 200 million kWh annually. Green power purchases represent nearly one-half of the renewable energy resources acquired by the federal government since 1990 to meet the intent of Executive Order 13123, which is to encourage greater use of renewable energy by the federal government.
