Oregon enacted legislation (S.B. 838) in June 2007 that requires all electric utilities to offer customers an optional green-power program. A "significant portion" of the electricity sold by a utility as green power must be generated using qualifying renewables, including wind energy, solar-thermal energy, solar-electric energy, ocean energy, geothermal energy, hydropower and/or certain forms of biomass energy. Each utility must inform customers of the sources of the electricity included in its green-power program.
