Partner Profile
The United States General Services Administration (GSA) is the Federal government's business manager with $64 billion in government wide financial responsibility. In FY15, GSA (Region 2) will procure 83 million kilowatt-hours (kWhs) of renewable energy for its facilities located in New Jersey and New York. This correlates to 43% renewable for GSA Region 2’s portfolio which is significantly higher than the amount required by EPACT 2005. A group of federal agencies and nongovernmental organizations in New York and New Jersey have joined GSA Region 2 to purchase an additional 82 million kWh of green power because they believe in the importance of buying green power for their facilities. The agencies include the Social Security Administration, US Bureau of Prisons and Veterans Administration. These green power purchases help protect the environment, create jobs in the private sector, and comply with the Energy Policy Act of 2005, EISA 2007 and the 2013 Presidential Memorandum - Federal Leadership on Energy Management.
