August 2005 - Eleven cooperatives have joined the Green Power EMC program, thus expanding the green power option to an additional 200,000 retail customers. A total of 28 Georgia cooperatives with 1.2 million eligible retail customers now participate in the program under which customers can make voluntary purchases of renewable energy in 150-kWh monthly blocks for $3 to $5, depending upon the participating cooperative. Since its creation in 2001, Green Power EMC has generated more than 50 million kWh of electricity from two landfill gas projects. The program recently added a low-impact hydropower project in Athens, Georgia.
