Lockheed Martin Purchases Green Power

October 2003 - The City of Palo Alto Utilities (CPAU) announced that defense and aerospace contractor Lockheed Martin plans to purchase enough green power to meet 10% of the annual electricity needs of its Palo Alto facilities through the utility's PaloAltoGreen program. The purchase will amount to 1.8 million kWh of renewable energy annually.

Separately, the utility announced that since unveiling its new program at the beginning of June, nearly 4% of its customers have subscribed to purchase green power and the city has set a goal of achieving a 10% customer participation rate within the next year. Under the program, which is Green-e certified, customers can purchase power generated from wind and solar resources at an additional cost of 1.5¢/kWh.
