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. Customers include 21 of the 25 largest wind purchases in the nation. CEI expects to support new wind projects in New England 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® residential and small customer products are "certificates" for wind energy, sold in blocks of 100 kWh. A typical contract would be for 1 block per month for 12 months.
Sources 100% from wind facilities in the Mid-Atlantic region (Pennsylvania and West Virginia).
New

100% new wind generation.

Availability The availability of NewWindEnergy® in some grids (notably New England) may be constrained, in which case customers may purchase NewWindEnergy® certificates from adjoining regions.
Product certifications All NewWind Energy® certificates are Green-e certified.
Emissions rates All NewWindEnergy® products are themselves zero-emission. In addition, by virtue of their grid location, CEI's Mid-Atlantic 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 residential and small customers are available in blocks of 100 kWh for $2.50 per block.
Price per kWh 2.5 c/kWh
Billing options Credit card purchases are possible. Long-term agreements with monthly billing options are welcome.
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.
