- On November 1, 2004, EPA entered into a three-year agreement with Unicoi Energy Services to purchase 100 million kilowatt hours of green power in the form of renewable energy certificates (RECs) annually. The contract helped support the generation of biomass power from paper pulp facilities in Port Wentworth, Georgia. The purchase offset 100 percent of the electricity consumption at all of EPA's RTP facilities, including the FEELC.
