Green Energy Available in Washington, D.C. Area

Pepco Energy Services, a subsidiary of Potomac Electric Power Company, has announced the signing of a landmark partnership agreement with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF), an independent, non-partisan organization dedicated to saving and restoring one of our greatest estuaries. The partnership program is designed to foster environmental conservation through electricity generated from Renewable Energy.

WASHINGTON, D.C. 2002-04-01 [] Under the agreement, Pepco Energy Services will offer green electricity, which consists of electricity produced with renewable resources, to Washington Metropolitan and Baltimore area residents. Electricity produced by renewable resources has significantly lower environmental impacts than electricity produced by burning coal or other fossil fuels. As customers signup for green electricity, they will be presented with a full membership to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. “To date, more than 25 percent of our residential customers in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania have purchased some form of environmentally-friendly electricity,” said Ed Mayberry, president and chief executive officer of Pepco Energy Services. “Partnering with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation gives us an opportunity to continue to reach out to customers that are interested in being conscientious environmental citizens and acting as an example for their families, neighbors, friends and co- workers.” “The new Pepco Energy Services-Chesapeake Bay Foundation partnership is unique,” said William C. Baker, president of Chesapeake Bay Foundation. “By making green energy customers members of CBF, Pepco Energy Services is generously supporting CBF’s work to save the Bay and introducing thousands of people who are making environmentally sound consumer choices to our organization. It’s a win-win-win if I have ever heard of one, and all of us at CBF thank Pepco Energy Services for its creativity and generosity.”
