Washington State Reports on Green Power Progress

January 2006 - The State of Washington issued its annual report documenting the progress of voluntary utility green power programs, which included several key findings:

  • In 2005, green power sales increased an estimated 57% from 2004, while customer participants increased by 11%.
  • The statewide customer participation rate in green power programs is 1.09%.
  • Wind energy accounted for 72% of voluntary renewable energy sales.
  • Several utilities initiated a reduced pricing structure for high-volume purchasers, which has resulted in greater sales to large customers, including universities and military bases.

Washington utilities that serve more than 25,000 meters are required by state law to offer green power options to their customers.
