September 2005 - The Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF), a Portland, Oregon-based non-profit marketer of green energy, introduced a new Green-e certified renewable energy certificate (REC) product that includes a larger amount of solar energy than its Cooler Future Green Tags product. The Brighter Future Green Tags product is a blend of 10% new solar energy from photovoltaic systems and 90% new wind energy sourced from projects in the 15 Western states and provinces. The product is sold in 1,000-kWh increments for $24, or 2.4¢/kWh. BEF introduced the new product in response to increased demand for solar-generated RECs.
