June 2004 - Advanced Energy announced that seven in-state renewable energy generators have been selected from a pool of 46 applicants to supply North Carolina's statewide green pricing program. Under the new contracts, the NC GreenPower program will obtain a total of 8 million kWh of power annually from a 1.5-MW landfill gas facility, a 150-kW hog waste digester facility, and five solar photovoltaic (PV) systems with a combined capacity of 27 kW. The program hopes to add wind energy to the resource mix later this year. Currently, more than 5,000 customers participate in the program and collectively purchase an average of 17 million kWh annually.
