Santee Cooper to Expand Green Power Mix

January 2006 - Santee Cooper, a state-owned electric and water utility with operations across South Carolina, announced that it will expand the mix of renewable energy sources used to supply its Green Power program over the next five years. The utility plans to add solar, wind and biomass projects to the 19.7 MW of landfill methane generation that will be on-line by the end of 2006.

Under the program, Santee Cooper customers can purchase 100-kWh blocks of renewable energy for $3.00 per month, or a 3¢/kWh premium to the regular electricity rate. The utility invests fully 100% of the customer revenues collected into acquisition and development of new renewable energy sources.
