Burbank Offers Green Power Program

May 2004 - Burbank Water and Power (BWP), a municipal utility serving about 50,000 electricity customers in the Los Angeles suburb of Burbank, offers its residential customers a green power option. Under the Clean Green Support program, customers can purchase green power in the form of "green tickets" for 50% or 100% of the their monthly electricity needs. The cost for the 50% green power option is an additional $3 per month (about 1.2¢/kWh for the average residential consumer), while the cost for the 100% option is $5 (about 1¢/kWh, on average). There is no minimum enrollment period.

The Green Tickets—also known as renewable energy certificates—represent the environmental attributes of electricity generation from renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, hydro, geothermal, and biomass energy. BWP shops the open market for the best prices.
