On March 25, 2003, the Fort Collins City Council approved the Electric Energy Supply Policy. Among other objectives, the policy directs the municipal utility to increase the amount of electricity generated from renewable energy. The policy specifies that a minimum of 2% of electricity be generated by renewable energy by 2004, increasing to 15% by 2017. In November of 2003, the City Council approved an electric rate increase of 2% to fund the energy policy objectives, with 1% directed for demand side management (DSM) programs and 1% for renewable energy. Renewable energy comprised 2.3% of purchased power for 2004, and 6.3% for 2008. Platte River Power Authority (PRPA) supplies all renewable energy to Fort Collins under a single wholesale tariff structure. Qualified renewable energy sources are limited to:
