Your Cooperative has been offering the Prairie Winds green energy pricing program since 2004. This program allows individual customers to voluntarily contribute to the development of alternate energy production facilities. Alternate energy production facilities may include wind energy, biomass, solar and other nontraditional generation technologies. All of the money collected from customers participating in the PrairieWinds® Energy in Motion Program will be used to support alternate energy production.
Through this program customers will not be directly purchasing alternate energy, but rather participating in the development/or support of these resources. Your participation ensures that purchases will be made from alternate energy production facilities for delivery into the system of the Cooperative's power supplier; but Lyon REC cannot ensure that the electrons purchased will be utilized to meet your individual energy needs.
Some highlights of the program include:
- Customers can contribute on a monthly basis by paying the additional amount with your monthly electric bill.
- The price for a contribution toward a tag of 100 kilowatt hours (kWhs) has been reduced to $0.20 per tag.
- The contribution will be in addition to the customer's normal electric bill and not a substitute for any charges there under. Once you have signed up, your participation will continue at the same level until you notify us that you wish to change the amount of your contribution or end your participation in the program. The minimum sign-up period shall be twelve months.
Customers may be asked to sign a Participation Agreement. A customer may enter the program at the beginning of any quarter. We are pleased to offer this option to you, and welcome your participation. If you are interested in participating, please complete the sign up form and return it to our office.
