Western Area Power Administration's Renewable Resources program encourages the voluntary use of renewable resources by WAPA's wholesale customers. WAPA offers federal customers two renewable resource products and facilitates customer access to renewable energy developers. The goal of the program is to identify customers who desire renewable resources in their generation mix and provide the technical and marketing assistance required for them to fully evaluate the option.
