June 2007 - AmerenUE announced that it has teamed with 3Degrees Group, Inc. (formerly the REC and Utility Partnership Division of 3 Phases Energy), an independent renewable energy marketing company, to provide a voluntary renewable energy program for its 1.2 million Missouri electric customers. Under the Pure Power program, residential and small business customers can purchase renewable energy for 100% of their electricity needs at a premium of 1.5¢/kWh. Medium and large business customers can purchase an unlimited number of 1,000-kWh blocks of green power every month for $15 each. The program will be supplied from Green-e certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) derived from new regional wind farms (75%) and other renewable energy resources (25%). At least half of the RECs will be sourced from renewable generators located within Missouri and Illinois. No subscription contract is required and customers can cease participation in the program at any time without penalty.
