City of Durango Goes 100% Green

The city of Durango (Colo.) announced that it will begin purchasing wind energy to meet 100% of its municipal electricity needs, equivalent to more than 8 million kWh annually. The wind energy will be purchased through La Plata Electric Association's (LPEA) Green Power program, which is supplied by Tri-State Generation & Transmission Association. Under the program, LPEA customers can purchase 100-kWh monthly blocks of wind energy for $1.25, or 1.25¢/kWh. The city expects to offset some of the additional cost of the wind energy purchase through energy efficiency improvements.
