Tallahassee Customers Get Green Option

December 2002 - The City of Tallahassee has launched a new green power offering for the city's residential and business customers in conjunction with Sterling Planet, a Georgia-based green power marketer. The municipal utility is offering two options under the Green for You program: a power blend of solar and biomass or a solar-only product.

Customers can purchase the blended product, which is supplied from 95% biomass and 5% solar resources, to meet 50%, 75% or 100% of their electricity needs at a premium of 1.6¢/kWh. The solar-only product, which is supplied from solar systems in Tallahassee and other areas of Florida, is offered at a premium of 11.6¢/kWh in increments of from 10% to 100% of a customer's electricity use. Sterling Planet plans to develop a 126-kW photovoltaic system in Tallahassee and a wood chip-fired biomass plant in Florida to supply the program.
