American Electric Power will spend $10 million dollars over the next three years on an ad campaign to get its customers in Ohio to reduce their energy use. The company’s new campaign, “Energy is Precious, Let’s Not Waste It,” offers a rebate to customers for buying Energy-Star certified clothes washers, refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, and compact fluorescent light bulbs. The company will also pay customers for having their old appliances picked up and recycled.

Brookfield Renewable Energy has acquired 10,700,000 shares of Western Wind Energy for $24.1 million dollars through purchase agreements with a third-party institutional investor. Brookfield now owns and controls 16 percent of the issued and outstanding shares of Western Wind.

The majority of Japanese say they want to end the country’s dependence on nuclear power, according to a new report. The public distrusts the government’s policy-making processes and is anxious over the safety of nuclear power. The study by a government group that analyzed a number of recent polls also says a major of the public wants renewable energy and is wiling to accept increased power costs for it.
