LIPA Green Choice Program Underway

August 2004 - The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), a municipal utility that serves nearly 1.1 million electricity customers on Long Island in New York, announced that its LIPA Green Choice Program is now open for enrollment. Under the program, LIPA customers can purchase renewable energy attributes through one of the three participating green power marketers—Community Energy, EnviroGen, or Sterling Planet. The green power options are supplied from sources such as wind, hydro and biomass and range in price from 1¢/kWh to 2¢/kWh above standard electricity rates. LIPA will apply the green power surcharge to the standard monthly electricity bills of participating customers.

Participants can change their initial selections or discontinue participation in the program at any time. LIPA will be supporting the program with a public education campaign that will include inserts in monthly billing statements, a Web page, and newspaper advertisements.
