Government of the District of Columbia Recognized with 2015 EPA Green Power Partner Award
Award recognizes Partners who distinguish themselves through innovative green power purchases

 

WGL Energy Services, Inc. (WGL Energy) congratulates the Government of the District of Columbia on being recognized with a 2015 EPA Green Power Partner Award in the “Green Power Purchaser” (GPP) category. This award category recognizes Partners who distinguish themselves through innovative green power purchases from a utility green-pricing program, a competitive green power marketer, or a renewable energy certificate (REC) supplier. The award was presented to the Government of the District of Columbia during this year’s Renewable Energy Markets conference (REM 2015) in October.

The District of Columbia is setting a strong example of national leadership in the effort to transform the nation's electricity sources to clean renewable energy. In 2014, the District government purchased green power from WGL Energy for 100 percent of its municipal use. The municipal government purchased more than 470 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of wind-sourced renewable energy certificates (RECs), equivalent to the annual power needs of 44,000 average American homes. At the time, the purchase placed D.C.'s government at number two on the GPP's list of Top 30 Local Government Partners, making it one of the few large municipal governments using enough clean, renewable energy to meet 100 percent of its electricity use.


“WGL is helping the District manage energy as an asset

by becoming more energy efficient, reducing volatility

and lowering its carbon footprint.”


In August 2015, WGL Energy was selected by the D.C. Department of General Services (DGS) as the supplier for city government accounts. “By continuing – and expanding – our relationship with a key energy customer and partner,” said Louis J. Hutchinson, Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer for WGL, the parent company of WGL Energy, “WGL is helping the District manage energy as an asset by becoming more energy efficient, reducing volatility and lowering its carbon footprint.”

Most recently, the District finalized the largest municipal (non-utility) Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) in U.S. history, a 46-megawatt (MW) wind farm, and is actively negotiating up to 12 MWs of rooftop and carport solar projects, which are expected to cover more than 35 percent of municipal electricity consumption.
