January 2002 - The state of Maryland selected Pepco Energy Services (PES), a subsidiary of Potomac Electric Power Company of Washington, D.C., to supply green electricity for 6% of its electricity needs. PES will supply a total of 1.6 billion kWh of conventional and green electricity over the two-year contract period, which begins in July 2002.
The power deal covers more than 16 state agencies located in the Annapolis and Baltimore areas, including the Departments of Transportation, Corrections, and Health and Mental Hygiene, as well as Morgan State University, Towson State University, the Anne Arundel County Public School System's nine largest facilities and the Camden Yards Sports Complex. In March 2001, Maryland Governor Parris Glendening issued an executive order calling for at least 6% of the electricity consumed by state-owned facilities to be generated from green energy sources.
In addition to Maryland, PES offers green power to retail customers in Virginia and Washington, D.C.
