College Station Texas Utility Announces Plans for New Green Pricing Program

July 2008 - The municipal utility serving College Station, Texas, a city of about 70,000 residents in central Texas, plans to begin offering its residential electric customers a renewable energy option by January 2009. Under the new Wind Watts program, residents will be able to purchase wind energy for 10%, 50% or 100% of their electricity needs. While the residential wind rates will not be published until the fall, the utility is currently allowing customers to sign up for the program online. To supply the program, College Station Utilities (CSU) is contracting with AEP Energy Partners for 10 MW of wind energy capacity from the South Trent Mesa Wind Project located west of Abilene. The initial contract is expected to supply approximately 3,000 residential CSU customers. The city plans to increase its wind energy purchases to 30 MW in 2015.
