Ohio Municipal Offers Green Option

March 2004 - Cuyahoga Falls Electric System, a municipal utility serving 24,000 electricity customers in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, is the first utility member of American Municipal Power-Ohio (AMP-Ohio) to offer a green power option to its electricity customers in partnership with Green Mountain Energy Company. Under the Nature's Energy program, customers can purchase electricity generated from small hydro and wind facilities for 1.3¢/kWh above standard electric rates or an extra $8 to $10 per month for the average customer. Commercial customers can buy green power in 1-MWh increments at the same 1.3¢/kWh premium. The power for the program is supplied from a recently completed 3.6-MW wind energy project in Bowling Green and a 6-MW hydro project installed in 1999.
