The University of Pennsylvania announced that it has signed a new 10-year agreement to purchase 40 million kWh of wind energy annually from Community Energy, Inc. of Wayne, PA. The new agreement doubles the amount of wind energy that the university purchases to the equivalent of 10% of its annual electricity needs.
