Cowlitz PUD Selling Green Tags

August 2002 - Cowlitz PUD, which supplies electricity to customers in southwestern Washington, has established a Renewable Resource Energy program through which its residential and business customers can support the development of new renewable energy sources in the Pacific Northwest. Under the program, customers can purchase 100-kWh blocks of green power for an additional $2.00 per month, or a premium of 2¢/kWh. Customers who purchase more than 15 blocks must enter into a special contract with the utility. To supply the program, Cowlitz has an agreement with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation to purchase green tags generated from the Stateline and Condon wind projects in Washington and Oregon and the Hanford/White Bluffs solar project near Richland, WA.

Cowlitz is required to offer a renewable energy purchase option under a state law enacted in May 2001.
