October 1997 - West Texas Utilities (WTU) announced a pilot program to offer residential and small-business customers in San Angelo, Texas, an option to purchase power from an existing 1.2-MW small hydro project. Participating customers will pay a premium of 2¢/kWh for the renewable electricity and can subscribe for fixed monthly blocks of 250 kWh, 500 kWh, or 1000 kWh. WTU intends to offer power from new renewable energy sources in later phases; contracts are under negotiation to acquire additional renewable resources.
