August 2008 - Allegheny Power, the electric delivery subsidiary of Allegheny Energy, Inc., announced today that the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission has approved Allegheny’s request to offer a voluntary wind energy program to its electric customers in the state.
In conjunction with its Watt Watchers energy conservation campaign, Allegheny has partnered with Community Energy, Inc. to implement and market the program. The program allows residential, commercial and industrial customers the option to purchase renewable energy credits (RECs) at an additional monthly charge. The credits can be purchased in blocks of 100 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per month at a cost of 2.5¢/kWh, or $2.50 per block. Customers will soon receive informational inserts and enrollment forms with their electric bills.
