Regional green marketing begins

Regional utility EWE in Oldenburg plans to begin marketing power generated exclusively from renewables this month. The electricity will be supplied from EWE's 34 wind turbines as well as from landfill gas plant and a small hydro station. Customers with an annual consumption of 3500 kWh will pay a net price of DEM 0.30/kWh. This is DEM 0.05 higher than for conventional power, according to EWE. In a survey, 46 of the utility's customers have said they will pay up to DEM 120 a year more for renewables. Should demand grow significantly, EWE will consider taking stakes in other renewables companies.
