Invest in Clean, Renewable Power

United Power members can purchase clean, renewable electric power through United Power’s Green Power Partners program. As a Green Power Partner, you can invest in renewable power by purchasing 100 kilowatt-hour blocks. Sign up to purchase as many blocks as you would like.

Your participation in Green Power Partners helps to direct our power supplier, Tri-State Generation and Transmission, to purchase new, renewable energy to add to our power mix.

United Power’s Green Power Partners are currently purchasing renewable wind energy through Tri-State from a variety of sources. Tri-State purchases wind power from Platte River Power Authority’s wind farm located near Medicine Bow, Wyoming, and from Basin Electric’s Prairie Winds Program, which consists of six wind projects totaling 85 megawatts. Wind power and other renewable resources such as small hydropower, biomass and solar energy are purchased on the open market by Tri-State through a system of “green tags” or “green certificates.”

Every dollar invested in this program go toward the purchase of new, renewable electric power production, such as wind, solar, and biomass, and fund research and development of emerging renewable technologies.
