Green Mountain Energy Company announced its selection by the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (NOPEC) to supply more than 400,000 Ohio residents with clean power. NOPEC is a buying group of nearly 100 Northeast Ohio communities formed under the state's electricity restructuring law. According to an article in the Akron Beacon Journal, Green Mountain will supply the aggregation group with a blend of power generated from natural gas (98%) and renewable resources (2%), such as hydro and wind, beginning in September 2001. Participating customers will save 6% to 8% on the generation component of their electric bills. The power supply agreement is expected to save consumers up to $12 million over six years.
