Green pricing permit sought for Wisconsin wind plant

MG&E has yet to seek permission for a special green rate from the state utility commission for its 11.25 MW wind farm to be developed by Northern Alternative Energy (Windpower Monthly, November 1997). But since the commission encouraged utilities to undertake green pricing programmes last year, no opposition is expected. The utility plans to sell power in 100 kWh blocks, for a premium of $4 or $5 a block, a higher premium than the green rate offered by Wisconsin Electric in the other major green pricing programme in the state. Wisconsin Electric uses only existing hydro, landfill gas and biomass.
