August 2002 - Select Energy, the competitive energy marketing and services arm of Northeast Utilities, has expanded its retail energy product portfolio to include environmentally friendly power choices for business and institutional customers in the Northeast. The company signed a contract with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to supply green power to meet the entire electricity needs of two GSA buildings in New York—the Binghamton Federal Building and the Pirnie Federal Building in Utica. GSA will purchase 1,100 MWh of wind energy annually for three years at a premium of 1.75¢/kWh.
