PPL Electric Utilities has filed a proposal with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) seeking approval of a PPL Electric green power program to be offered to PPL Electric's customers in partnership with Community Energy Inc., a marketer and developer of renewable energy.

According to David G. DeCampli, president of PPL Electric, the voluntary green power option would enable customers to buy 100 kWh blocks of renewable energy credits (RECs), which are the result of energy generated by wind and hydroelectric projects. For each block purchased, $2.50 would be added each month to a subscriber's regular PPL Electric bill.

To implement the program and support continued investment in renewable resources, PPL Electric says it will buy approximately 500,000 RECs over four years from Community Energy.
