Portland General Electric (PGE) has more renewable power customers than any other utility in the U.S., according to the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), which released its annual rankings of the nation's top utility green pricing programs.
At the end of 2009, PGE had nearly 73,000 business and residential renewable customers, or 10.2% of its eligible customers, enrolled in a PGE renewable power program, which is well over the national average of 2% participation rate for other utilities.
Green Mountain Energy Co. is PGE's agent for renewable power marketing services and supply. The company has been serving in this role since 2001 and was recently awarded a new three-year contract from PGE.
