April 2001 - Waverly Light and Power (WL&P), a municipal electric utility serving 4,300 customers in northeast Iowa, is selling wind power certificates representing the environmental attributes of the power output of its three wind turbines. WL&P owns and operates one 80-kW turbine located north of Waverly, Iowa and two 750-kW turbines near Alta, Iowa. Under its Iowa Energy Tags program, WL&P offers certificates representing 2,500 kWh of wind power output for $50 each, which translates to a cost of 2.0¢/kWh. Participants need not live in Iowa or obtain electric service from WL&P in order to purchase certificates. According to the utility, revenues from the sale of the certificates will be used to develop additional wind projects.
