March 2003 - On February 10, the Board of Commissioners of Radnor Township, a suburb of Philadelphia with about 30,000 residents, unanimously approved a resolution to purchase wind energy to meet 62% of the township's electricity needs. Under a three-year contract with Community Energy, Inc. and the Energy Cooperative of Pennsylvania (ECAP), Radnor will purchase 1.4 million kilowatt-hours of wind energy annually to be supplied by the new 66-MW Mountaineer Wind Energy Center in West Virginia. The township is offsetting the added cost of the green power with energy savings from the installation of energy-efficient LED traffic lights and competitive market savings from switching its entire electric load to ECAP.
