Corvallis Becomes a Green Power Community

May 2006 - The City of Corvallis (Ore.) has been designated a "Green Power Community" by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Green Power Partnership (GPP), becoming the third U.S. city to receive the special title. The EPA bestows the designation on cities that buy green power in amounts that collectively meet or exceed the program's minimum purchasing benchmarks, which vary by a community's annual electricity use.

Corvallis ranks first among Oregon cities with nearly 12.5% of electricity customers supporting renewable energy through Pacific Power's Blue Sky green pricing program. The city itself purchases 75,000 kilowatt-hours of Blue Sky wind energy each month.
