Gainesville Offers New Green Option

December 2003 - Gainesville Regional Utilities announced that it is offering a new green power option to its approximately 82,000 residential and business customers in Florida. Under the GRUgreen Energy program, customers can purchase renewable energy for any portion of their electricity usage for an additional 2¢/kWh. Most of the power for the program (95%) will be supplied from a new 2.3-MW landfill gas facility in Alachua County. The project is unique in that it recycles landfill leachate back through the waste to accelerate the creation of methane gas. The remainder of the power will be supplied from wind energy certificates and local solar systems.
