In September 2002, Clark County purchased 10 percent of its electricity requirements from renewable energy as part of the Clark Public Utilities' Green Lights program. Ten percent of the County's electricity requirements equals 120,600 kWh (1,206 blocks of 100 kWh), at a cost of $1,809 per month. The county's commitment covers electricity purchased for all county buildings and facilities.
Currently there are more than 1,100 Clark Public Utilities customers who have agreed to voluntarily support the development of renewable energy resources in the Northwest. Customers can choose to purchase 100 kilowatt-hour blocks of Green Lights electricity. Each block costs $1.50. Contributions are pooled with those of thousands of other Northwest utility customers to support the development of new, non-polluting energy resources in the region. More information can be found on the program at the Green Lights website.
