Austin Energy Had The #1 US Green Energy Sales Program For 2007

Austin Energy's GreenChoice is again the #1 green power program in the nation for sales for the 6th year in a row. The program outperforms 600 other utility sponsored programs according to data published by the Department of Energy National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The latest ranking is for the year ending December 2007 when GreenChoice sold 577.6 million kWh.

Currently, sales top 743 million kWh annually due to the new supply of wind, which went on sale January 2008. Austin Energy also had the third lowest green power premium among all utilities and was second in the percentage of power from renewable resources at 5%. Our new wind supply increases that number and after our next wind farm goes on line at the end of this year, our percentage of energy from renewables will approach 12%.
