February 2000 - According to the Energy Cooperative Association of Pennsylvania (ECAP), about 800 of its customers, or 10% of its total membership, are now purchasing green power. The cooperative recently upgraded its green power offering by dropping its 50% renewable power option and lowering the price of its 100% renewable option to match the default power price of 5.65¢/kWh. The green power product is supplied by Mack Services Group and consists of electricity generated from landfill gas (80%) and small hydropower (20%) resources, with 10% of the power coming from newly developed facilities.
