Georgia Power Inks Supply Deal

July 2005 - Georgia Power announced that it has entered into a 10-year contract to purchase the output of a 3.2-MW landfill gas electric generating facility to supply its voluntary Green Energy program.

In July 2003, the Georgia Public Service Commission approved the program through which customers can purchase 100-kWh monthly increments of renewable energy for $5.50, or a rate premium of 5.5¢/kWh. Since the approval, Georgia Power had made several unsuccessful attempts to find green power supplies at an acceptable price. The landfill gas project, located in Dekalb County, is expected to be operational by the fall of 2006. Participating customers must subscribe for a minimum of one year.
