Georgia Co-ops Launch Program

October 2003 - Sixteen members of the Georgia Electric Membership Corporation (EMC), which collectively serve about 850,000 electric meters, officially launched a green power option for their residential and business customers. Under the Green Power EMC program, customers of the electric cooperatives can sign up to purchase 150-kWh blocks of green power for an additional $3 to $5 each month (2¢/kWh to 3.33¢/kWh), depending upon the cooperative. Power for the program is supplied from three in-state landfill gas projects with a combined capacity of 9 MW. The first of the three projects began generating electricity in early October. A portion of the program revenues will be placed into a fund that will be used to develop additional renewable energy resources, such as wind, solar, and low-impact hydro.
