Subscribe to Green Power News offers Tahoe Green Power in CA

November 2000 - announced that it will offer a new 100% green power product in California that is generated from biomass and other renewable resources. A portion of the electricity for the product, called Tahoe Green Power, will be generated from downed wood waste collected in the Lake Tahoe Basin.

Using the wood waste for electricity represents an environmental improvement over current practices in which the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) burns the collected waste wood in open fires. Through a partnership with the Nevada State Energy Office, USFS, and others, Go-green will have the wood transported to a local biomass generation facility.

The product should be available for retail purchase by the end of the year and purchasing customers will receive certain incentives, such as two-for-one ski lift tickets and a one-year membership to the National Arbor Day Foundation.
