Westport, Connecticut Goes Green

January 2002 - On January 23, the Board of Selectmen of Westport, Connecticut, approved a measure to purchase green power from the Connecticut Energy Cooperative to supply the city's Town Hall and most of its recreation buildings. The city will purchase the Co-op's EcoWatt product, which is Green-e certified and supplied primarily from landfill gas and small hydro facilities, with some wind energy. According to the Co-op, Westport is the first municipality in the Northeast to sign up for 100% Green-e certified electricity.

The Co-op supplies green power to more than 3,000 households in Connecticut.
