City of Alameda

August 2012 - Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) of California has announced a new voluntary program offering its customers the option to purchase 100 percent renewable energy. On behalf of program participants, AMP will purchase Green-e Energy certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) sourced from wind projects located in western states (98%) and solar projects located in California (2%). AMP offers the 100-percent renewable energy program to residential and smaller business customers for a premium of 1.5¢ per kilowatt-hour (kWh). Larger businesses can participate in increments of $15 per month for blocks of 1,000 kWh.

News Release - AMP Customers Can Now Choose 100% Renewable Energy

August 1998 - The City of Alameda's Bureau of Electricity will offer a green pricing option to their electricity customers beginning in the fall. Alameda, which already obtains more than 75% of its power resources from renewable energy sources, will offer a "New Renewables Option," under which customers can support "investment in future renewables or new investments for upgrades and retrofits for existing renewable sources."

The Bureau already offers a net metering program to customers with rooftop solar systems.
