May 2001 - PacifiCorp and Portland General Electric (PGE) announced that the Port of Portland (Oregon), which owns and maintains five marine terminals, four airports, and seven business parks, will obtain about 1% of its electricity needs from renewable resources through the two utilities' green pricing programs. The Port will purchase a total of 6.3 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of renewable energy annually through Pacificorp's BlueSky program and PGE's Clean Wind and Salmon-Friendly Power programs.
