In 2007, the state of Oregon enacted Senate Bill 838 – the Oregon Renewable Energy Act. The act
created a Renewable Portfolio
Standard (RPS) that all Oregon electric utilities must follow. The purpose of the RPS is to
decrease Oregon utilities' reliance on fossil fuels for electric generation and increase their use of
renewable energy sources including biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar and wind.
As illustrated above, EWEB's power portfolio is overwhelmingly made up of renewable resources.
Therefore, we already exceeds the targets.
The bill also
mandates that utilities, including EWEB, publish an annual compliance report.
