MRES Expands Wind Program

December 2003 - Missouri River Energy Services (MRES), a wholesale power provider for 56 municipal utilities in four Midwest states, is adding two, 950-kW wind turbines to its Worthington, Minnesota wind farm to supply its Riverwinds green pricing program. The program has also been expanded to include 16 municipal utilities in Iowa, which by state law are now required to offer a green pricing option.

Under the Riverwinds program, customers of participating utilities can purchase 100-kWh monthly blocks of wind energy for $2.00 to $2.50 per block (2.0¢kWh to 2.5¢kWh), depending on the utility. Currently, a total of 38 utilities in Minnesota (20), Iowa (16), South Dakota (1), and North Dakota (1) offer the program to their retail customers.
