Georgia Co-ops Expand Green Power Supplies

July 2005 - Georgia Electric Membership Corporation is exploring new supplies for its Green Power EMC program. Earlier this year, the cooperative association added a 2.3-MW hydropower project at Tallassee Shoals in Athens, which is certified by the Low Impact Hydropower Institute. Green Power EMC is also collecting wind resource data at the site of a pumped storage hydro project in Floyd County with the intent of adding wind energy to its green power resource mix in the future.

Formed in 2001, Green Power EMC is a joint effort by 17 of the state's electric cooperatives to generate energy from renewable resources. Under the program, participating customers can purchase renewable energy in 100-kWh monthly increments for an additional $3 to $5, or a rate premium of 3¢/kWh to 5¢/kWh, depending upon the participating EMC. A portion of the revenues collected from green power subscribers goes toward research and development.
