Wisconsin Electric Extends Green Option to MI Customers

November 1999 - The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) has approved a plan by Wisconsin Electric to extend its green power option to its Michigan-based customers. Wisconsin Electric has a green pricing program, Energy for Tomorrow, through which its Wisconsin-based customers can purchase all or part of their electricity requirements from renewable resources. Now the utility's 25,000 customers in Michigan's Upper Peninsula will be able to participate in the program.

Wisconsin Electric also announced that it signed a five-year contract with Waste Management, Inc. to develop 7.5 MW of new landfill-gas capacity and ensure the continued operation of existing projects totaling 16.2 MW. The new capacity will be used to satisfy a state mandate for renewable resources and provide power for the Energy for Tomorrow program.
