Flathead Electric Cooperative

July 1999 - Flathead Electric Cooperative, which serves 47,000 customer accounts throughout Northwest Montana, announced that it has entered into a two-year contract with Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) to purchase 1 MW of "environmentally preferred" power. Beginning October 1, 1999, BPA will provide the cooperative with electricity from its standard green power mix, which is a blend of new wind power from the Arlington, Wyoming wind project and small hydro resources (under 30 MW). Flathead plans to give all of its customers the option of purchasing the green power at a premium of 2¢/kWh and will begin marketing the program in August.
