July 2003 - Lower Valley Energy, an electric cooperative serving about 13,500 members in western Wyoming and southeastern Idaho, recently unveiled a new green power option for its residential and business customers. Residential customers can sign up to purchase 300-kWh blocks of green power for $5 each month, which represents a rate premium of 1.67¢/kWh, while commercial customers can participate by purchasing 3,000-kWh blocks for $50 each month. Customers are free to sign up for as many blocks as they desire. To supply the program, the utility is purchasing wind energy under an agreement with the Bonneville Power Administration.
