EPA Announces More Purchases

March 2004 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that it is purchasing green power for two Georgia-based facilities. Under a three-year agreement between the Defense Energy Support Center (on behalf of EPA) and 3 Phases Energy (now serviced by 3Degrees), EPA will purchase 11.2 million kWh of renewable energy certificates (RECs) annually to supply its Region 4 Office Building in Atlanta and its Science and Ecosystem Support Division Laboratory in Athens. The RECs will be supplied from landfill gas generating facilities located in Kentucky and North Carolina.

Including this procurement, EPA now purchases a total of about 122.5 million kWh of green power annually, which is equivalent to 44% of the electricity consumed at all EPA facilities nationwide.
