NativeEnergy Offers Wind Program

November 2001 - NativeEnergy, a newly formed company based in North Ferrisburgh, VT, has launched a program through which participants can make contributions to support the development of new wind farms and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Under the company's WindBuilders program, participants can contribute $120 annually, or $11 per month, in the form of a membership fee to purchase green certificates from new wind farms that will then be donated to Clean Air-Cool Planet, a non-profit environmental organization.

Initially, the membership fees will be used to support the development of the Graber Family Wind Farm in South Dakota, a three-turbine, 2.7-MW project that the company expects to be operational by late 2002. In recognition of their participation in the WindBuilders program, members will receive quarterly e-mail newsletters, an invitation to the opening ceremony for the wind facility, and a WindBuilders certificate. Membership fees may be tax deductible.

The company's five-year mission is to fight climate change by triggering construction of 150 MW of new wind farms and helping to avoid five million tons of CO2 emissions.
