New-Mac Electric Cooperative, which serves about 16,000 customers in Newton, McDonald and Jasper counties, Missouri, will begin offering a green power product to its customers in January 2005. Customers will have the option of purchasing green power in blocks of 100 kilowatt-hours (kWh) for an extra $3 per month or 3¢/kWh with no limit to the number of blocks that can be purchased, but customers must make a 12-month commitment to purchase the same number of blocks each month.
The power will be provided through KAMO Electric Cooperative (KAMO Power), an Oklahoma-based generation and transmission (G&T) cooperative, which makes green power available to its member distribution co-ops. The power is supplied by Associated Electric Cooperative, Inc. (AECI), which sources wind energy from Aquila's 110-MW Gray County Wind Farm located in southeastern Kansas.
