How can I make a difference with my energy consumption at home?


Portland General Electric (PGE) has been awarded the Number One Renewable Program in America. This means that PGE offers it customers several options for lowering energy consumption and sourcing purely renewable sources for its customers. Many of these options come from several resources to include: wind, biomass, geothermal and hydro. By committing to these sources your electricity will be offset by 100 percent renewable sources. These earth friendly power source options (Green Source, Clean Wind from PGE) help a customer consciously determine the source of where they are consuming energy.
