Pasadena Water & Power

June 2003 - Pasadena Water & Power (PWP) is offering a "green power" option to its approximately 60,000 residential customers. Under the new program, customers can purchase newly developed wind energy at a premium of 2.5¢/kWh. The Pasadena City Council recently approved a long-term contract with PacifiCorp Power Marketing to purchase 6 MW of output from the 150-MW High Winds project currently under construction in Solano County, CA. PWP will use the wind energy both to supply the green pricing program and to comply with a state law (SB 1078) that requires public utilities to develop and implement a renewable portfolio standard. Six other California cities, including Glendale and Anaheim, are also purchasing power from the High Winds project, with their combined commitments totaling 45 MW.
