Cedar Falls Participation Reaches 3.8%

December 1999 - Since February 1999, Cedar Falls Utilities (CFU) has offered its customers the option of contributing $2.50 each month to support the operation and maintenance of three 750-kW wind turbines that were installed in November 1998 by a consortium of seven Iowa municipal electric utilities. CFU owns two-thirds of the wind project.

To date, more than 600 of CFU's 16,000 residential customers, or about 3.8%, are participating in the program. Development of the project, located near Algona, Iowa, was helped by $2.8 million of funding from the U.S. Department of Energy and EPRI though the Wind Turbine Verification Program (TVP).
