OPALCO Starts Selling “Green Power”

The Green Power Program began.  Members who opted in paid a 4 cent-per-kWh premium on their bills.  Of this amount, 2.5 cents paid for BPA’s Environmentally Preferred Power and 1.5 cents went toward incentives for local renewable power producers feeding in to OPALCO’s grid.  This program wold eventually morph into the Member Owned Renewable Energy program (MORE)  in 2011.
