CVPS Seeks Approval for Green Option

March 2004 - Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS) is seeking approval from the Vermont Public Service Board (PSB) to offer a renewable energy option for its 148,000 electricity customers. Under the proposed CVPS Cow Power program, customers would be able to purchase green power for 25%, 50% or 100% of their monthly electricity needs at a premium of 4¢/kWh—a typical residential customer using 500 kWh per month would pay an additional $20 for 100% green power. The utility intends to supply the program from electric generating facilities fueled with methane from Vermont-based dairy farms. The company hopes to gain regulatory approval to offer the service beginning in July.
