La Plata Electric Association, Inc. (LPEA) offers you the choice to purchase some or all your electricity as "Green Power," electricity generated from clean, renewable resources. You may opt to support Tri-State wind generation, local renewable projects or both. We offer Green Power in 100 kilowatt hour blocks for an additional $0.09 per month. To sign up call or stop by our office in Durango or Pagosa Springs.

Tri-State Generation & Transmission Option
LPEA’s power supplier, Tri-State Generation & Transmission, purchases renewable energy and its attributes from wind, solar and biomass generating facilities across the western United States.
Tri-State’s renewable energy undergoes third party certification by Western Renewable Energy Generation Information System (WREGIS) and Midwest Renewable Energy Tracking System (M-RETS).
Local Funding for Renewable Projects
Customers wishing to provide funding to local renewable resource generated power can select this option. Purchased blocks will be used to fund installation of solar PV panels for local educational, charitable, low-income and public safety purposes. It's an educational effort for our communities, and a step toward locally generated electricity.
