May 2002 - Georgia Governor Roy Barnes declared April 22 Green Power Day as 16 electric cooperatives began selling green power to their member customers. The green power will be offered to customers in 150-kWh blocks with the pricing to be determined separately by each cooperative based on generating expenses and administrative costs. The power will be supplied by Green Power EMC from three new landfill methane projects, totaling 8 MW of capacity, which will become operational later this year. Additional green power resources will be added at a later date.
