I'll answer this one.

In short, you don't.

All power produced, no matter the source, is placed on the grid.

When you sign up for "green" power, whatever amount of power that you
use, the power utility must buy this power from the green power

This system still works, because for every Kw placed into the grid from
a green source, one less Kw is generated by conventional means -> less
pollution in the long run.

Now, I want to know, how your gov't gets away with paying you "nominal
cost of generation" at .5 cents/Kw, and yet claim 6 cents on their end?

Are you actually generating surplus power with a windmill? With all of
your political boondoggles up there, I would think it would be easier to
just charge a bank of batteries for periods of low wind.
