August 2003 - Pacific Power announced that it has selected 3 Phases Energy (now serviced by 3Degrees) to provide renewable energy supply and marketing services for the utility's Renewable Usage and Habitat green energy options starting Jan. 1, 2004. According to the utility, the new three-year agreement will improve upon the current products by increasing the amount of new and local renewable energy sources, including wind energy, biomass and a small amount of solar energy. The majority of the wind energy will be supplied from the Stateline wind project located along the Oregon and Washington border.
The product pricing will remain the same at 0.78¢/kWh above the utility's normal rate. The Habitat plan also includes an automatic $2.50 monthly donation to the Pacific Salmon Watershed Fund, which is an Oregon-based nonprofit organization dedicated to the restoration of native salmon habitat. Pacific Power and 3 Phases plan to offer facility tours and provide enhanced information on the renewable energy projects to help build customer participation.
