May 2008 - AmerenUE received regulatory approval to add a block option to its Green-e certified Pure Power green power offering for residential and small commercial customers. The new option of 1,000 kWh blocks, at $15 per block, was already available at the same price to large industrial electricity customers. This announcement expands that option to the other customer classes, who could previously only purchase renewable electricity for 100% of their usage, at 1.5¢/kWh above the standard rate. For some small commercial customers, the block option allows for participation at a lower monthly cost than previously available with the usage rate. The block option also provides a solution to customers seeking a fixed renewable energy premium each month. 3Degrees will continue to manage the Pure Power program.
