The City of Beaverton, Ore., is now purchasing 100% of its electricity from wind power sources under utility Portland General Electric's (PGE) renewable energy program.

In the past, the city purchased offsets for its electricity needs in all of its buildings, but now because renewable energy is less expensive, city officials say it is able to purchase green power equivalents for all operational demands, including streetlights, traffic signals and water pumping. Beaverton is the only city in the state that buys all of its power from PGE’s program.

“By supporting these renewable energy sources since 2007, Beaverton continues to contribute to a bright, sustainable energy future for Oregon,” says Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle, adding, “We understand the importance of investing in green power to preserve the high-quality of life our community enjoys.”
