Three-year agreement furthers Missourian support of wind industry
San Francisco, May 1, 2013 — 3Degrees, one of the nation's leading providers of renewable energy and carbon offsets, announced a three-year contract renewal with Ameren Missouri to continue Pure Power, a voluntary green pricing program. There will also be a price reduction for program participants.
Ameren Missouri Pure Power offers renewable energy certificates (RECs) for businesses and residents generated by facilities like Farmers City Wind Farm in Atchison County, Missouri. Beginning May 1st, RECs previously offered at $15/MWh are now available at $10/MWh. The dramatically lower cost is expected to make program participation attractive and obtainable for more Missourians, and means a lower price for existing participants too.
“Based on the success of the Pure Power program, I believe that more and more Missourians see renewable energy as an important part of a diverse economy,” said Steve McDougal, President of 3Degrees. The next three years should see even higher program growth to support the mid-West wind industry.
