Penn Doubles Wind Energy Purchase

April 2003 - 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. The university also noted that the new purchase commitment will make it possible for Community Energy and other partners to construct a new 20-MW wind project in Pennsylvania with Penn purchasing 40% of the output.
