The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) has purchased approximately 24,000 renewable energy certificates of FirstEnergy Solutions' (FES) MixedGreens product as a source of a portion of their electric generation. This agreement represents 10% of UPMC's electricity load in the Pittsburgh area.

MixedGreens is a combination of renewable resources, including wind, biomass, geothermal electric, photovoltaic and hydroelectric.

"We have 145 MW of capacity available to us from wind farms in western Pennsylvania, with another 70 MW expected to go online this year," says Arthur Yuan, vice president of sales and marketing for FES.
