New Green Pricing Programs in West Virginia

September 2008 - Two electric utilities, both owned by American Electric Power, have launched voluntary green pricing programs for their West Virginia customers. West Virginia customers of Appalachian Power and Wheeling Power will now have an option to purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs) from wind and hydro resources in 100 kWh blocks at a cost of 1.5¢/kWh above the standard rate, or $1.50 per block. Participating customers must purchase a minimum of two 100-kWh blocks of green power.

Appalachian Power provides electricity to one million customers in Virginia, West Virginia and Tennessee. The Green Pricing Option is currently only available to Appalachian Power’s customers in West Virginia, but the company expects to expand the program to its Virginia customers by the end of 2008. Wheeling Power provides electricity to approximately 41,000 retail customers in Wheeling and Moundsville, West Virginia and does business as AEP.
