PacifiCorp Files to Lower Green Premium

March 2001 - PacifiCorp has filed an advice letter with the Oregon Public Utility Commission requesting approval to reduce the price premium charged for its Blue Sky renewable energy offering. The utility offers customers the option of purchasing 100-kWh blocks of electricity from newly constructed renewable energy facilities for a monthly premium of $4.75 per block or 4.75¢/kWh. PacifiCorp proposes to reduce the price premium to 2.95¢/kWh, or $2.95 per 100-kWh block. In its filing, the utility explained that "due to reductions in the forecast cost for new wind energy and increases in the forecast for market alternatives, the incremental cost of the new renewable energy has declined. This reduction is reflected in the proposed new price."
