October 2002 - The Energy Cooperative of Pennsylvania, a non-profit cooperative with more than 6,500 members in the Philadelphia area, announced that is now offering a wind power option to all of its residential and commercial customers. In collaboration with Community Energy, the Energy Cooperative is offering New Wind Energy in 100-kWh blocks at an extra cost of $2.50 per block each month.
By switching to the Energy Cooperative for electricity service, customers can apply cost savings achieved in Pennsylvania's competitive retail electricity market to the purchase of New Wind Energy. For example, the Borough of Media, an historic suburb of Philadelphia with a population of 6,500, will buy 128,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of wind power annually, or enough to cover 44% of the electricity needs of its Borough Hall and highway garage, at no extra cost.
