Pure Power, a voluntary renewable energy program offered by St. Louis-based utility AmerenUE, has had its renewable energy certificates (REC) certified by the Center for Resource Solutions.

At least half of the Pure Power demand will be met by new renewable generators located within Missouri and Illinois, AmerenUE notes. Seventy-five percent or more of customer demand will support wind farms, with the balance supporting other forms of renewable generation.

Customers participating in the program choose to pay an additional $.015 per kWh for the electricity they use. Medium and large business customers can participate by purchasing 1,000 kWh blocks of Pure Power for $15 per block, the utility adds. The program has been in operation since June.
