Oregon State U. Purchases Green Tags

September 2003 - The Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) announced that Oregon State University (OSU) has committed to purchase 5 million kWh of green power over the next four years. Under the agreement, the university will purchase "green tags" from BEF representing the energy output of wind and solar facilities in the Pacific Northwest. The purchase was made possible through a state policy that allows large customers, like OSU, to self-direct a portion of their state-mandated public purpose charge payments to support specific renewable energy and energy efficiency programs. The university and BEF also plan to site a small renewable energy project, such as a solar photovoltaic array, on the campus.
