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.
