Two programs chart parallel paths to renewable energy in Missouri
In November 2008, Missouri voters passed Proposition C, the Missouri Clean Energy Initiative. Now many are asking, "What does Prop C mean for Missouri and how does it relate to Pure Power?"
Prop C will require the four Missouri investor-owned utilities to get 15% of their electricity from clean energy sources by 2021, with 2% to come from solar power sources. It also includes a rebate to customers on solar systems installed after 2009 and caps the average retail rate increase to build these projects at 1%. The process of defining how the state will implement this new law began in March, and only time will tell what this initiative will mean for renewable energy growth in Missouri.
UE's Pure Power complements Proposition C by giving customers the choice to support new renewable energy sources for 100% of their energy use today. So Pure Power customers are leading the way on the path to renewable energy!
