Pennsylvania Project to Reduce Greenhouse Gases

Commitment by

Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection

In 2005, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection committed to develop the Pennsylvania Project to Reduce Greenhouse Gases, a multiple-initiative project to deploy clean, renewable, and efficient energy technologies which will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions while strengthening economic and environmental security in the state. Governor Randell launched the Pennsylvania EDGE initiative in 2005. State-led efforts to promote clean energy have included purchasing 90,000 Mwhs annually of greenhouse gas free renewable energy; and the 'PennSecurity Fuels Initiative,' which seeks to replace 900 million gallons of the state's transportation fuels in 10 years with alternatives and to establish a clean fuels standard.
