Clark County Purchases Green Power

October 2002 - Clark Public Utilities announced that Clark County will purchase green power to supply 10% of the electricity needs of all county buildings and facilities. With its purchase of 1.4 million kWh of green energy this year, the county becomes the largest participant in the utility's Green Lights program. The green power purchase will cost the county an extra $21,708 a year.

Green Lights is a voluntary program through which electricity customers can buy 100-kWh blocks of green power for an additional $1.50 each month, or 1.5¢/kWh. The utility offers the program in conjunction with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF), which assists in the development of new wind and solar projects in the region. A portion of the customer premiums will be used to develop new renewable energy projects in Clark County.
