IID is in the process of developing a new Green Energy Renewable Program that will allow customers to designate how much renewable energy they wish to be served with.
In 2018, IID will serve its customers with 35 percent renewable energy. Customers who elect participation in the new Green Energy Renewable Program, can choose to be served with an even greater percentage of renewables, up to 100 percent.
The program is expected to launch in the last quarter of 2018 and it is estimated that it will increase customers’ per kilowatt-hour rate by $0.013 to $0.02. The monthly rate will fluctuate based on IID’s cost to procure renewable resources.
The program will be open to all electric customers, with an exception for customers who have installed on-site renewable systems or wholesale power customers receiving standby service.
The district has allocated 5 megawatts in the initial offering of the program; however, additional megawatts may be added to the program if customer demand warrants an increase.
A champion for renewable energy, IID has invested millions of dollars in incentives to help customers take part in its renewable energy programs, including issuing rebates, weatherizing homes, tuning-up AC units and offering savings on energy and excess power sold to IID through net metering and net billing programs.
