PGE Exceeds 5% Green Program Participation

December 2005 - Portland General Electric (PGE) reported that 40,000 customers, representing more than 5% of its total customer base, are now purchasing one of three green power products offered through the utility. PGE is the largest utility in the United States to reach the 5% customer participation threshold. PGE customers can choose to purchase renewable energy to meet 100% of their monthly electricity needs for as little as 0.8¢/kWh on top of the regular electricity rate. The utility attributes its program success to "an effective information and marketing effort" combined with "customers' strong support for the environment."
