Corvallis Issues Green Power Challenge

December 2005 - The Corvallis (Oregon) City Council issued a city-wide challenge to residents and businesses to sign up for Pacific Power's Blue Sky renewable power program. Currently, about 9.5% of electricity customers in the city are enrolled in the program. The council's goal is to increase the percentage to 15%, or an additional 1,900 customers. The challenge runs through Earth Day 2006.

Under its Blue Sky Block program, residential customers can purchase renewable energy from wind farms in 100-kWh increments at a premium of $1.95, or 1.95¢/kWh. Oregon customers can also choose Blue Sky Usage (in which customers receive their equivalent energy usage from a mix of wind, biomass, and solar sources ) or Blue Sky Habitat (in which customers buy renewable energy, plus make a $2.50 monthly donation to The Nature Conservancy of Oregon to preserve native fish habitat). Pacific Power also offers a "quantity savings" program under which commercial customers can obtain a volume discount for green power purchases.
