Iowa Cooperative Offers Green Option

January 2004 - Farmers Electric Cooperative, which serves 650 electric meters in eastern Iowa, began offering a green power option to its electricity customers on January 1. Under its Green Power Project, customers can sign up via their utility bills to contribute a minimum of $2.50 per month to support the development of renewable energy sources. The funds will be used to support the use of biodiesel in diesel-fired peaking generators or the development of Iowa-based wind resources.

All utilities in Iowa are required by state law to offer a green power option to their electricity customers.
