The mayor of Beaverton, Ore., announced that the city will purchase about 7.6 million kWh of renewable energy from Portland General Electric (PGE) this year to power all of its facilities, including City Hall, the Beaverton City Library, the public works building, pumping stations and other water facilities. The announcement came as the mayor issued a "Green Power Challenge" for more citizens to purchase renewable energy. The goal of the three-month, community-wide campaign is to achieve 250 new enrollments in PGE's renewable energy programs.
