Short history Community Energy, Inc. (CEI) was founded in 1999 by leading environmental groups with a mission to ignite the market and supply the demand for new, locally-produced, "fuel free", renewable electricity. CEI has helped bring over 270 megawatts (MW) of new wind energy projects on-line in the Eastern United States. Its customers include 21 of the 25 largest wind purchases in the nation. CEI is developing new wind projects in New England, which are expected to come on-line in 2004 or 2005.
Philosophy "Customers make new wind projects happen." CEI is a for-profit company that brings customer support to specific wind projects in each grid in which it operates.
Form/features CEI's NewWindEnergy® medium and large customer products are "certificates" for wind energy, generally sold through bi-lateral contracts, with pricing based on megawatt-hour (MWh) volume and term. Certificate contracts are flexible - customers can customize their purchase amounts to meet a certain percentage of their overall use, the use of a specific facility, environmental or emissions goals, or other factors. CEI medium/large customer certificate contracts average a term of 3 years and volume of 2,000 MWh.
Sources 100% wind from new facilities New York and Pennsylvania, and from projects under development in New England.
New

100% new wind generation.

Availability Customers may purchase NewWindEnergy® certificates from new projects operating in adjoining Northeast regions. CEI is also entering into contracts for wind supply under development in the New England region. (Customers pay only when projects come on-line.)
Product certifications All NewWindEnergy® certificates from current wind supply are Green-e certified. (Projects under development can only be certified once operational)
Emissions rates All NewWindEnergy® products are themselves zero-emission. In addition, by virtue of their grid location, CEI's New York, Mid-Atlantic and future New England wind farms help offset CO2 and other emissions upwind of Maine.
Other benefits In addition to the public health and social benefits from zero-emission wind generation, wind turbines use less than 5% of the land area for electricity generation than do other generation facilities. This small "footprint" allows more productive land to be used for other purposes (e.g., farming, recreation, etc.)
Price per block NewWindEnergy® certificates for medium and large customers are available in a price range of $10 to $20 per megawatt-hour (MWh), based on volume and term.
Price per kWh 1.5 to 2.0 c/kWh
Billing options Billing options are specified by contract. Typical contracts include long-term agreements with monthly billing, or one-time payments.
Notable contract terms Because NewWind Energy® certificates represent the environmental and production attributes of a specific amount of wind energy, they are generally not a tax-deductible purchase.
