Mayor's Challenge Doubles Program Participation

February 2006 - Lodi Utilities, a municipal electric utility serving about 1,600 customers in south central Wisconsin, has achieved a 4% participation rate in its renewable energy program following an Earth Day challenge issued by the city's mayor. Program participation has more than doubled over the past nine months to more than 60 customer participants. In addition, Mayor Paul Fisk recently issued a resolution setting a goal for the city to obtain 10% of its electricity needs from renewable energy sources by 2010.

Lodi Utilities is one of 36 Wisconsin municipal utilities that offer green power in conjunction with Wisconsin Public Power Inc. (WPPI). Through the program, residential and business customers can purchase renewable energy generated from small hydro, wind, and biogas resources in 150-kWh increments for $3.00 a month, or a premium of 2¢/kWh. Collectively, more than 2,800 customers from among the WPPI-member utilities are enrolled in the program and purchase about 825,000 kWh of green power annually.
