The Power of Wind

Why purchase wind energy?
It's a renewable power source, which means it can never be depleted. NewWind Energy® is a homegrown, wind power source that also promotes our energy independence.

Does it matter who my electricity supplier is?
No. You can purchase NewWind Energy® across the state. You will receive a certificate that confirms the delivery of wind energy to the grid.

Can I be sure that wind energy I buy is delivered to my meter?
No, but we can assure you that the wind energy you purchase is generated by wind farms in New York. In turn, this wind energy is delivered to the power grid for statewide distribution.

Wind Power is clean, 100% renewable power from Community Energy Inc.

Instead of drawing on nuclear, large-scale hydro and fossil fuel sources, this new energy is generated from New York's own wind farms.

University at Buffalo

UB's purchase of 20,000,000 kilowatt hours of wind generated electricity in 2003 and 2004 from Community Energy has made the University at Buffalo New York's largest purchaser of wind power. UB community members can now join the move to clean energy.

"UB has a long commitment to campus environmental stewardship and we recognize the need to transition to clean renewable energy. We are proud to take a leadership role in purchasing wind power for a portion of our electric usage and bringing new wind energy to New York. We hope that other institutions, businesses, and residents will follow our lead in creating the demand for new wind resources in our state." ~Walter Simpson, UB Energy Officer
