BPA Teams to Form Bonneville Environmental Foundation

July 1998 - The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) has teamed up with three environmental groups to form the Bonneville Environmental Foundation. The groups have agreed to endorse power generation from "select, environmentally preferred resources," which BPA will market at a price premium.
