May 2003 - American Municipal Power-Ohio (AMP-Ohio), an Ohio-based nonprofit wholesale power supplier for municipal utilities, announced that it has selected Green Mountain Energy Company to offer a new renewable energy option to its 86 member communities, representing more than 380,000 customers in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Michigan.
Under the agreement, communities served by AMP-Ohio can offer residential and small business customers the opportunity to purchase renewable electricity from Green Mountain. The product, called Nature's Energy, will cost an additional 1.3¢/kWh, or approximately $8 to $10 more per month for the average customer, and will be supplied from landfill gas and/or small hydroelectric generators located in Ohio and neighboring states.
The new program stems from a nationwide agreement between Green Mountain and Hometown Connections International, a subsidiary of the American Public Power Association (APPA), to develop customized green pricing electricity options for public power utilities.
