Incentive/Summary In April 2004, Connecticut's governor sign
In April 2004, Connecticut's governor signed an executive order directing state-government agencies and universities to purchase an increasing amount of electricity generated by renewable resources. Under terms of the order, the state government has a goal to increase "Class I" renewable energy purchases to 20% of electricity used in 2010, 50% in 2020 and 100% in 2050. The order also authorizes the use of savings generated by state energy efficiency and conservation projects to fund green power purchases. Class I renewable energy resources include solar, wind, new sustainable biomass, landfill gas, fuel cells (using renewable or non-renewable fuels), ocean thermal power, wave or tidal power, low-emission advanced renewable-energy conversion technologies, and new run-of-the-river hydropower facilities with a maximum capacity of five megawatts (MW). In 2006, Governor Rell issued Connecticut's Energy Vision for a Cleaner, Greener State, which sets a separate set of goals for the state. Specifically, it states that by 2020, 20% of all energy used and sold in the State will come from renewable (clean) resources. See the [ Energy Vision] for additional goals. The State of Connecticut has made the Environmental Protection Agency's National Top 50 Green Power Partnership (R) list from 2009-2012. Contracts in place for 2012 represent 107,618,005 kWh of green power, or 17% of Connecticut state government’s electric load. See [ EPA Green Power Partnership] for more information.
