Corvallis Leads Nation’s Cities in Green Power Use

February 2009 - The city of Corvallis, Oregon, is the nation’s leader among communities purchasing green power, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership program. Collectively, Corvallis residents, businesses, and government agencies purchase more than 100 million kWh of green power annually, or about 13 percent of the city’s total purchased electricity. Oregon State University is the largest single purchaser of green power in Corvallis, buying enough renewable energy to meet about 75 percent of its needs.

Oregon cities made up half of the EPA’s top 10 green power communities list, with leading purchases by Beaverton, Bend, Gresham and Salem.
