Municipal electric utilities serving more than 40,000 customers in Colorado must offer an optional green-power program that allows retail customers the choice of supporting emerging renewable technologies. The renewable energy credits (RECs) generated by the resources are retired upon their sale to a customer, and may not be used for compliance with Colorado's renewable portfolio standard.
