New Jersey Agencies Purchase Green Power

May 2001 - A group of New Jersey agencies and universities are purchasing green power to meet about 15% of their collective electricity needs. The group has contracted with Conectiv Energy to purchase Nature's Power 50, a 50% renewable, Green-e certified product supplied from landfill gas and small hydro resources. Over the course of the 16-month contract, the group will purchase a total of 152 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) at a cost of $2.1 million, or about 1.7¢/kWh over the cost of system power. Conectiv will supply the power through January 2002.

Participants in the aggregation group include departments and agencies within the State of New Jersey; 11 state universities; NJ Transit; the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey; the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority; the New Jersey Turnpike Authority; the New Jersey Highway Authority; the Hackensack Meadowlands Development Commission; the Delaware River Port Authority; the New Jersey Water Supply Authority; South Jersey Transportation Authority; and Palisades Interstate Park Commission.
