October 2007 - AmerenUE announced a new green power offering for its 1.2 million electricity customers in Missouri. Under the Green-e certified Pure Power program, customers can purchase renewable energy equivalent to their electricity needs at a premium of 1.5¢/kWh over standard electricity rates. Business customers can purchase the renewable energy in 1,000 kWh increments each month for $15. The program will be supplied with renewable energy certificates (RECs) from recently constructed wind farms (75%) and other renewable energy sources in the region. At least half of the program demand will be met by new renewable generators located within Missouri and Illinois. AmerenUE does not profit from the program and customers can cease participation at any time with no penalty. 3Degrees Group, Inc., formerly the REC and Utility Partnership Division of 3 Phases Energy, will develop and manage the Pure Power program over the next five years.
