July 2002 - AES NewEnergy is partnering with the Environmental Resources Trust (ERT), a certifier and broker of green power, to offer a renewable energy option to non-residential customers in Illinois. Customers can buy green energy certificates supplied from existing (60%) and new (40%) landfill methane facilities to meet any portion of their electricity needs. The green power price premium varies depending on the volume purchased. AES NewEnergy currently supplies green power to the state of Illinois, which has committed to purchase green power to meet at least 5% of the state government's electricity needs.
