Our pioneering commitment to renewable energy began in the early 1980s with a demonstration wind project on the southern Oregon coast, followed by an experimental utility-scale wind project in Wyoming in the 1990s.
Renewable generation from company-owned and contracted solar and wind facilities represent an important and growing segment of our resource mix.
Through our Energy Vision 2020 initiative, we're significantly expanding the amount of wind power serving customers by 2020 and "repowering" our existing wind resources.
Black Cap started generating electricity for customers in October 2012 and produces enough energy to serve about 400 average homes annually. Black Cap was the first utility-scale solar operation in Oregon to begin supplying power.
