Pa. Doubles Green-Energy Use to 20%

Pennsylvania’s state government will double the amount of electricity it consumes from renewable energy sources to 20 percent.

“It makes Pennsylvania by far and away the largest state in terms of purchasing megawatts from green electricity,” said Pennsylvania’s Governor Rendell, according to the Philadelphia Inquierer. “It will also make us the 12th-largest purchaser on the EPA’s list of green energy. That’s something we can be enormously proud of.” Before the purchase, Pennsylvania was 25th.

The state contracted July 1 to buy 200,000 MWH in wind and hydroelectric energy from Community Energy Inc. at $550,000 a year for two years. The original contract in 2004 was for 100,000 MWH a year at $276,000.
