Ashland Launches New Green Option

November 2003 - The City of Ashland (OR) and the nonprofit Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) have teamed to offer the city's electricity customers a new green power option. Under the Renewable Pioneers program, residents and businesses can support local and regional renewable energy development by purchasing Green Tags directly from BEF at a cost of 2¢/kWh. Ten percent of the revenues from green tags sales to Ashland residents and businesses will be used to fund solar projects within the city. Program participants will see no change in their utility bills because the green tags purchase is a separate transaction with BEF. The new program replaces Ashland's Solar Pioneers program.
