September 2002 - Green Mountain Energy announced that it is providing 100% renewable electricity service to the Liberty Bell Pavilion at Independence National Historical Park and other federal government-operated facilities in Philadelphia. Under the three-year contract, the federal government will purchase a total of 3.7 million kWh of green power annually. The facilities will purchase Green Mountain Energy's Nature's Choice, a Green-e certified product generated from renewable resources such as wind, water, biomass and solar generation.
Among the accounts included in the contract are the Liberty Bell Pavilion; the new Liberty Bell Center currently under construction; the First Bank of the United States (circa 1797); and the Todd House (circa 1791). The contract also covers seven other government facilities in and around Philadelphia, operated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), and the National Park Service.
With this new purchase, the agencies have reaffirmed their commitment to green power. In March 2000, GSA entered into a contract with the Energy Cooperative Association of Pennsylvania (ECAP) to supply the agencies with green power.
