Vermont Utility Launches Green Program

January 2003 - Green Mountain Power, an investor-owned utility that serves one-quarter of the retail customers in Vermont, announced a new monthly renewable energy service that will enable customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by supporting the development of new renewable energy projects. Under the CoolHome program, customers can make tax-deductible donations of $6 per month to Clean Air-Cool Planet, a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding solutions to global climate change, which in turn uses the donations to support development of new renewable energy projects through Vermont-based NativeEnergy. Initially, the funds collected will be used to support two 30-kW turbines fueled by methane gas from a wastewater facility in Vermont, a 750-kW wind turbine on the Rosebud Sioux reservation in South Dakota, and several farm methane projects in Vermont.

The CoolHome program was first introduced to Green Mountain Power customers as a one-time-payment pilot program in May 2002.
