  Governor Gary Locke boosts green power programs in Seattle
 

Governor Gary Locke visits downtown Seattles Westlake Park on Thursday April 18 at 11:00 a.m. to promote Green Power programs to pre-lunch-hour passersby. These programs pay for the expansion and acquisition of electricity from renewable resources.

Customers may meet Governor Locke, learn more about Green Power programs and enroll at this time. Representatives from Seattle City Light, Puget Sound Energy, Snohomish PUD and Tacoma Power will have information about their programs available. The display will be set up at the corner of Pine Street between 4th & 5th Ave, near the arch.

Programs like Seattle Green Power, are available to give customers the opportunity to pay a little bit more each month on their electric bills if they wish. Large utilities in the state are now required by law to offer these program to those who request it.

Since Seattle City Lights program began in January, more than 2,200 customers have made a commitment to regularly contribute to Seattle Green Power. An additional 255 customers have made one-time payments. The program is available to both residential and business customers. About 12 business customers have enrolled so far.

Funds collected through Seattle Green Power are used to support new solar installations on public buildings and the acquisition of alternative energy sources, including farm animal waste to electricity, geothermal and other renewable sources of energy.

All City Light customers may participate. Residential customers can sign up for as little as $3 a month, or write a check for any amount at any time.
