Otter Tail Lowers Green Premium

April 2006 - Otter Tail Power Company, an investor-owned utility serving nearly 130,000 customers in three Midwestern states, has lowered the rate charged for its TailWinds green power product to 1.6¢/kWh from 2.6¢/kWh. The premium adjustment resulted from a combination of factors, including a lower-cost source of wind energy; an increase in the embedded generation cost to which the renewable energy cost is compared; and reduced marketing and promotion costs for the program.

The price change is being applied retroactively to September 1, 2005, meaning that active TailWinds customers will receive a refund for the difference between the two rates. In addition, the utility has extended the availability of the program with the signing of a 15-year wind power purchase agreement.
