Boone Electric Lowers Green Premium

February 2004 - Boone Electric Cooperative (BEC) announced that it has lowered the premium charged for its Renewable Choice green power product from 3.0¢/kWh to 2.0¢/kWh. The premium reduction stems from the utility's use of walnut shells that were ruined when tornadoes struck a storage building last May in Stockton, Missouri. The damaged shells were transported about 150 miles and co-fired in a coal plant, generating nearly four million kWh that will be used to supply the green pricing program. Previously, the utility had contracted for wind energy generated from a Kansas-based wind project.
