GSA Greens Liberty Bell Pavilion

March 2000 - The Liberty Bell and seven other federal government accounts in Pennsylvania will be powered with renewable energy under an agreement signed between the General Services Administration (GSA) and the Energy Cooperative Association of Pennsylvania (ECAP). The agreement represents the first competitive purchase of renewable energy by federal agencies in the Eastern U.S.

GSA will purchase 2.7 million kilowatt-hours annually of ECAP's 100% renewable energy product, EcoChoice, to serve the accounts, which include the Liberty Bell Pavilion, operated by the National Park Service, and a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency facility. The green product is comprised of power generated from landfill gas and small hydro resources. The green power purchase was negotiated as part of a larger GSA electricity procurement and represents less than 1% of the total contracted power.
