Tampa Lowers Green Power Premium

March 2005 - Tampa Electric Company has doubled the size of the renewable energy blocks offered through its green pricing program, thus lowering the rate premium from 10¢/kWh to 5¢/kWh. Under the utility's Renewable Energy program, residential and business customers can now purchase 100-kWh blocks of renewable energy for $5 per month with no limit on the number of blocks that can be purchased. Power for the program is sourced from local solar and landfill gas projects, and through co-firing biomass waste materials in existing coal-fired generating units.

In 2004, the Florida Public Service Commission approved Tampa Electric's request to extend its green pricing pilot program through December 31, 2006, and to allocate $150,000 from the utility's Conservation R&D Program to help cover program expenses.
