Pennsylvania to Purchase Green Power

December 2001 - Pennsylvania Governor Mark Schweiker announced that the Commonwealth will purchase renewable energy to supply 5% of the state government's power needs for two years beginning in 2002. The power, amounting to 50 million kWh annually, will be supplied under contract with Community Energy Inc. and will be a mix of wind power, landfill gas, hydroelectric, and solar energy. According to the Governor's office, nearly 120,000 Pennsylvanians now use "cleaner and greener forms of power" through participation in the state's Electric Choice program.
