Poll: Would You Opt to Buy 100% Renewable Energy?

Wilmette residents can choose the lowest price option or choose to purchase renewable energy through the Individual Choice Green Power Program.

.

The villages, which joined forces to form the Lake Shore Power Alliance, have selected mc2 to supply electricity for the aggregation program.

For Wilmette residents, the primary program will offer the lowest price option, at 4.035 cents per kilowatt-hour, which includes the statuary minimum of 7 percent renewable energy. Residents also have the option of purchasing 100 percent renewable energy at 4.11 cents per kilowatt-hour, or about $10 more per year than the primary program.  

A Patch reader was not pleased with the village's decision to select the lowest price option and not set the Individual Choice Green Power Program as the primary program village-wide.

Looks like the Village Board got it exactly right. Half can sign up for 100% renewable and the other half can sign up for the 15% state minimum renewable. This will produce the maximum satisfaction for Wilmette homeowners.
