20% by 2010 Clean Energy Campaign Progress:

The City of Meriden uses 27,000,000 kWh of electricity per year for all municipal facilities. Therefore, their 20% clean energy use target is 5,400,000 kWh in 2010. To date, they have met approximately 2% of that goal through the mandatory amount that is required by the state Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS). Meriden has yet to make a voluntary clean energy purchase.
