October 2002 - The Maryland Department of General Services (DGS) announced that it is soliciting bids for electricity service in the Conectiv service territory that includes an "aggressive" green power procurement goal of 20%, of which at least 10% must come from wind or solar energy sources.
Among the state accounts to be served are Salisbury University, the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore and the Eastern Correctional Institute. The DGS already purchases green power to serve 6% of the load of 18 state agencies and departments in the Annapolis and Baltimore areas, which meets a green power purchase standard established by Governor Parris Glendening in March 2001.
