Cover Story Insert

The EPA announced in August that it will power three of its research facilities in Cincinnati, OH, with 100-percent renewable energy through an agreement with Community Energy, Inc., a renewable energy marketing company. By early 2002, EPA will be receiving nine percent of its electricity from green sources at facilities located in Richmond, CA; Golden, CO; Chelmsford, MA; Manchester, WA; and Cincinnati.
The EPA Cincinnati facilities have committed to purchasing a total of 15,560,000 kWh of premium renewable energy annually for three years, with a three-year option to renew. Community Energy, Inc. will supply 778,000 kWh of New Wind Energy™ each year from the Exelon Power Team at Mill Run, PA, which will make up five percent of EPA Cincinnati’s estimated usage. ComEd, a subsidiary of Exelon Corp. that serves customers in Northern Illinois, in partnership with Environmental Resources Trust (ERT), will supply the remainder of the renewable energy contract with landfill gas energy from ComEd’s territory in Illinois.
By purchasing wind and biomass energy, EPA can claim large reductions in emissions associated with the purchase of conventional energy. The emission benefits associated with this purchase are approximately 16,000 tons of carbon dioxide, 112,000 pounds of nitrous oxides and 246,000 pounds of sulfur dioxide each year.
