Swarthmore, Pennsylvania has been an EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) Green Power Community since October 2007. According to the map on the EPA's website, Swarthmore is the only community on the entire eastern seaboard to make this claim.
What Swarthmore and 25 other communities in Unites States have done, is partner up with the EPA and purchase "green power in amounts that meet or exceed EPA's Green Power Community purchase requirements". This voluntary partnership with the EPA is a way for communities and organizations to help reduce the impact of electrical consumption on the environment.
Even though Swarthmore is the only community east of the Mississippi, as of October 2009, to be in this partnership with the EPA, there are many organizations and businesses in Pennyslvania and other eastern states that are partners.
Congratulations Swarthmore for leading the way in this Eco-friendly trend!
