New Jersey Agencies Pool Green Power Purchase

August 03, 2003

Pepco Energy Services, Inc. announced on July 23 that it has teamed with Community Energy, Inc., to supply an aggregation of New Jersey state agencies with "Green-e" certified wind-generated electricity. It is the largest such agreement signed to date with state agencies on the East Coast.

Under the 33-month agreement, Pepco will supply the agencies with more than 24 MW of electricity, including 12 MW of wind energy generated from wind farms in the mid-Atlantic region. The agencies entered into the agreement in part to meet the 10% environmentally friendly green power purchase goal established by New Jersey Governor James McGreevey.
