Tri-State Lowers Green Power Premium

September 2006 - Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, which serves 44 member distribution systems in Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico and Wyoming, announced that is has reduced the price it charges its member co-ops for renewable energy sources under its green power program. Member cooperatives can now purchase renewable energy in 100-kWh increments for $1.25 or 1.25¢/kWh, down from $2.50 or 2.5¢/kWh. The decision to lower the premium resulted from increased green power sales and greater use of renewable energy certificates (RECs) to supply the program. Tri-State sells more than 7.5 million kWh of green power annually to its member systems. The G&T purchases RECs from Basin Electric, PacifiCorp and Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska sourced from wind and small hydro resources.
