Help College Park Become a Green Power Community (GPC)!

Help College Park gain and maintain eligibility for the Green Power Community Program with our collaboration with the University of Maryland.  In order to ensure that College Park can obtain and maintain the GPC designation after the first year, the University and the City actively encourage resident and business participation in green power purchases.  Maintaining the GPC designation after the first year requires our community to continue to meet and exceed the GPC’s renewable energy purchase requirements each year.

We All Benefit: Every resident, business, and institution choosing green power helps to clean our air, supports renewable energy, and creates jobs in the new clean energy economy.  Make the switch to clean energy by selecting a green power provider today!  Non-residential customers are also encouraged to sign-up with the EPA Green Power Partnership to help us meet our goal.
