The article focuses on the significance of green power programs in reducing the electricity prices of consumers in the U.S. The customers have benefited from these programs because the utilities offering the programs have priced the products on a long-term, fixed-rate price for the wind power and have exempted customers from any increases due to rising natural gas prices because it is not fuel-based. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, there are about 125 green power programs offered by 600 utilities. Among these utilities are Austine Energy, Edmund Electric, OG &E Electric Services, Eugene Water & Electric Board, Madison Gas & Electric, We Energies, and Xcel Energy.
