Rochester-Based Utility Offers Wind Power

April 21, 2004 []RG&E kicked off its Catch the Wind program, which provides an opportunity for the company’s electricity customers to help the environment and diversify New York’s energy supply by purchasing NewWind Energy, a product of Community Energy. RG&E electricity customers can now choose to have some or all of their electricity supplied by 100% clean, renewable wind energy generated in New York. Customers can purchase “blocks” of NewWind Energy with each block equal to 100 kilowatt-hours and costs from $2.00 to $2.50 per block, per month, depending on the number of blocks purchased. The minimum purchase is two blocks per month. A typical residential customer uses 600 kilowatt-hours of electricity per month, or six blocks. Charges for wind energy are included in the customer’s regular electricity bill.
