October 2006 - Santee Cooper, a state-owned electric and water utility serving more than 150,000 residential and commercial customers in South Carolina, announced a statewide "Green Tag" offering, which will complement the utility's existing Green Power Program. Under the new program, customers throughout South Carolina can purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs) for 3¢/kWh, with a volume discount offered for larger purchases. The RECs are sourced from landfill methane projects located throughout the state. All program revenues will be reinvested in future renewable energy programs, such as solar and wind projects. The new program will be Green-e certified.
