WPS Launches New Green Pricing Program

April 2002 - Wisconsin Public Service Corporation (WPS) is offering a new green power option to its more than 400,000 customers in northeastern and central Wisconsin. Under the NatureWise program, residential, farm, and business customers can purchase 100-kWh blocks of green power for $2.65, or 2.65¢/kWh. Initially, power for the program will be generated from wind (50%), landfill methane (40%), and dairy farm waste methane (10%). The wind power will be supplied from two, 660-kW wind turbines installed in Glenmore, WI, in 1998 and the landfill and dairy farm projects are currently under development.

WPS has received accreditation for the NatureWise product under the Center for Resource Solution's (CRS) national Green Pricing Accreditation Initiative. The utility also expects to offer the product to its Michigan-based customers next year, subject to regulatory approval.
