Greenburg, Pa.-based Allegheny Power, the electric delivery subsidiary of Allegheny Energy Inc., has filed an application with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission to offer a voluntary wind energy program to its customers in the state.

This renewable energy program would give customers the opportunity to support the development of renewable sources of electricity from wind farms in Pennsylvania and other areas of the country.

Allegheny Power will partner with Community Energy Inc., a wind energy marketer and developer, to implement and market the program. Residential, commercial and industrial customers will be able to participate in the program at various levels of support, with rates starting at an additional $2.50 per month.

"We are excited to partner with Community Energy to give our customers the opportunity to support the development of energy from a renewable source," says David E. Flitman, president of Allegheny Power.
