"PaloAltoGreen is a voluntary program available to CPAU residents and business customers. This new program offers the option of supporting 100% renewable energy from the wind at some of the lowest rates in the nation. For more information call Utility Marketing Services at 650-329-2241.
In addition to environmental protection, the program offers these benefits as well:
- Energy Diversification: Helps build America’s long-term sustainable energy infrastructure, reduces our dependence on fossil fuels, and furthers our national energy independence.
- Farming: Wind farms are located on land primarily used for dry land wheat farming and cattle grazing. Agricultural activities take place adjacent to the wind turbines and farmers who host wind energy facilities generate annual land leases of approximately $3,000 to $4,000 per turbine. Farmers call wind farming "a new cash crop."
- Jobs: Stimulates the creation of jobs supporting wind and solar energy construction and operation."
