Prairie Winds - Alternate Energy Purchase Power Program

Western Iowa Power Cooperative offers an alternate energy purchase program. The Prairie Winds green energy program allows WIPCO members to voluntarily contribute to the development of alternate energy production facilities. Alternate energy production facilities may include wind energy, biomass, solar energy and other nontraditional generation technologies. All of the money collected from customers participating in the green pricing program will be used to develop alternate energy production facilities.

Through this program members will not be directly purchasing alternate energy but rather participating in the future development of these resources. Your participation ensures that purchases will be made from alternate energy production facilities for delivery into the system of Northwest Iowa Power Cooperative (NIPCO), WIPCO’s power supplier; but we cannot ensure that the electrons purchased will be utilized to meet your individual energy needs.

Some highlights of the program include:

  • Available to members within any of our rate classifications.
  • Members can contribute on a monthly basis by paying the additional amount with your monthly electric bill.
  • The price for a contribution toward a block of 100 kWhs is $.20.
  • The contribution will be in addition to the Member’s normal electric bill and not a substitute for any charges thereunder.

Once you have signed up, your participation will continue at the same level until you notify us that you wish to change the amount of your contribution or end your participation in the program. The minimum sign-up period is 12 months.

If you are interested in participating in this program, complete the Wind Power Agreement or go to our Programs page to fill out the form and submit online.

RECare Sign Up

RECare is a consumer contribution fund in which members like you assist other members who need help paying utility bills.

Where will my contributions go?
The money stays in our service area, with every dollar contributed to this fund being earmarked for disbursement by the local community action agencies to help pay winter heating bills and to assist in weatherization of homes of low-income consumers.

How do I give?
You may make a one-time contribution or you may make a monthly pledge that will be automatically added onto your monthly electric bill. You may also make your contribution part of a matching fund if there is one established. Your contribution is tax deductible. Even a dollar a month pledge will help others! To contribute monthly, complete the Consumer Authorization Form or go to our Programs page to fill out the form and submit online.
