Through the WindCurrent program, customers can purchase 100-kWh blocks of wind power for $5 each, or 5¢/kWh. To supply the program, the utility has contracted to purchase 35,000 kWh (350 blocks) of wind power each month from Western Resources, which operates a 1.5-MW wind project in Kansas. Customers must agree to participate for a minimum of one year. To date, about 140 customers have subscribed about three-fourths of the available blocks.
