OPPD to Launch Green Pricing Program

November 2001 - The Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) has announced plans to offer a green pricing option to its nearly 290,000 residential and commercial customers beginning in December. Customers will be given the opportunity to purchase power generated from wind and landfill gas resources for an extra 3¢/kWh. Residential customers can participate at one of four set levels, ranging from 150 kWh to 1000 kWh per month, while commercial customers can obtain 25%, 50%, or 100% of their power needs through the program. OPPD will purchase power from a new 660-kW wind turbine and a 3.2-MW landfill gas plant to supply the program. Both projects are expected to be operational in early 2002. Customers must agree to participate in the program for a minimum of one year.
