Connecticut leading way in 'green' power use
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the state will be purchasing 17 percent of its power this year from so-called "green" sources, such as wind, solar and water systems.
Connecticut is one of only three states on the EPA's top 50 list of national Green Power Partners, recognizing its purchase of more than 107 million kilowatt-hours of green power.
"We are well on track to achieve the goal of obta+ining 20 percent of the electricity used by the state of Connecticut from renewable sources by 2020," Gov. M. Jodi Rell said in a statement.
