January 2001 - The Connecticut (CT) Energy Cooperative announced that it has enrolled 122 United Illuminating (UI) customers for its EcoWatt green power product, thus becoming the first licensed retail power supplier to switch residential customers in the UI service territory from standard offer service. The EcoWatt product is 100% renewable and Green-e certified, and is sold for 1.0¢/kWh more than the standard offer rate in most parts of the state. With the addition of the UI customers, the energy cooperative now serves a total of 825 customers in Connecticut with green power.
