March 2004 - The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) announced that it plans to provide green power options for the nearly 1.1 million electricity customers that it serves on Long Island. Under the proposed Green Choice program, retail customers will be able to purchase green power in the form of renewable energy attributes directly from green power marketers. Participating customers will receive a single bill from LIPA reflecting both standard electricity charges and the incremental charge for the green power, which is expected to range from about 0.5¢/kWh to 2¢/kWh. The utility hopes to roll out the program in June.
