LPEA offers you the choice to purchase some or all of 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.
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 the 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. Renewable Generation Funds Grant Application
