SVP Announces Green Pricing Program

October 2004 - Silicon Valley Power (SVP), the municipal electric utility of the City of Santa Clara, CA, announced a new renewable energy offering for its residential, commercial, and industrial customers. Under the new program—Santa Clara Green Power—customers can choose to receive 100% renewable energy for a premium of 1.5¢/kWh. The product will be supplied with renewable energy credits from newly constructed wind turbine facilities and new solar photovoltaic projects located within California. Additionally, a portion of the program revenues will be used to support new solar facilities in the Santa Clara community.

SVP is partnering with 3 Phases Energy (now serviced by 3Degrees), a California-based renewable energy company, to develop the offering and manage the renewable energy purchases and marketing on behalf of the City.
