June 2004 - 1st Rochdale Cooperative is now offering a fixed-price green power option to electricity customers in Con Edison's service territory in New York City and Westchester County.

Customers can purchase the green power at a fixed price of 14.4¢/kWh—a 1.5¢/kWh premium above the Cooperative's standard electricity rate of 12.9¢/kWh—for one year from the time of enrollment. Participating customers will receive a separate bill from 1st Rochdale. The product is supplied by Sterling Planet and certified by Environmental Resources Trust.
