Beit Am Jewish Community Center receives $51,250 boost from Pacific Power Blue Sky
Grant for solar installations at community center will help save money, reduce carbon footprint

CORVALLIS, Ore.--The Beit Am Jewish Community Center will tap into solar energy by the end of the year thanks in part to funding from Pacific Power customers who voluntarily participate in the Blue Sky renewable energy program.

"Our Blue Sky customers put their dollars to work in their communities," said Celeste Krueger, Pacific Power's regional business manager for Corvallis. "Not only will these facilities supply renewable energy, but they are helping increase the visibility and adoption of renewable technology. We are proud to be part of this important partnership with communities and our Blue Sky customers."

The Corvallis project is part of up to $1.1 million in new renewable energy investment in 2018, bringing more than 675 kilowatts of new renewable energy capacity online. Since 2006, Pacific Power Blue Sky customers have helped fund the installation of 101 community-based projects totaling 8.8 megawatts of renewable energy generation capacity, demonstrating the viability of renewable energy in their communities with more than $10 million in investment during that time.

The Beit Am project will go atop a new building funded by donations. The 23.8 kilowatt project will save energy costs that instead can be applied to enable Beit Am to increase financial support for many community projects such as Stone Soup meals for low-income community members; regular drives for clothing, food, and supplies for the nonprofits Community Outreach, Inc. and Welcoming Immigrants to Oregon; monthly Jewish services at the Oregon State Penitentiary and Oregon State Correctional Institution; and staffing the Corvallis Men's Cold Weather Shelter.


"The display of solar panels will be a model to our membership and other faith groups in Corvallis to do the same: to invest in renewables, to reduce our reliance on fossil fuel, and to be more mindful of taking care of our one and only home," said Ken Winograd, of Beit Am

Pacific Power selects projects for major wind power expansion - 02/20/18

Pacific Power selects projects for major wind power expansion
1,300 MW of new wind part of Energy Vision 2020 plan

PORTLAND, Ore,--Feb. 20, 2018 -- Pacific Power has selected four new wind projects to fulfill plans to significantly expand the amount of wind energy serving customers by 2020.

The four projects will expand the company's owned and contracted wind power by more than 60 percent and add enough new wind energy to power approximately 450,000 average homes.

The new wind development is part of the company's Energy Vision 2020 initiative, which also will upgrade the company's existing owned wind fleet in Wyoming, Washington and Oregon with longer blades and newer technology, and build a new high-voltage transmission line in Wyoming to connect the new wind energy to PacifiCorp's grid.

"We are committed to expanding the amount of renewable energy serving our customers, and these new wind projects will help us cost-effectively further that goal," said Stefan Bird, President and CEO of Pacific Power, the unit of PacifiCorp that serves customers in Oregon, Washington, and California.

The bids were selected following a request for proposal (RFP) issued in September 2017. The RFP establishes a competitive bidding process for the company to select the most cost-effective new wind projects. The four selected projects are:

* A 400 MW wind project in Converse County, Wyoming, which will be built by NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, with half of the project owned and operated by PacifiCorp, and half of the project owned and delivered by NextEra under a Power Purchase Agreement.
* A 161 MW wind project in Uinta County, Wyoming, which will be built by Invenergy, LLC, and owned and operated by PacifiCorp.
* A 500 MW wind project in Carbon and Albany Counties, Wyoming, which will be built, owned and operated by PacifiCorp.
* A 250 MW wind project in Carbon County, Wyoming, which will be built, owned and operated by PacifiCorp.
The additional wind generation and associated transmission line were identified in the company's 2017 Integrated Resource Plan as part of a broader approach to most cost-effectively meet customers' energy needs over the next 20 years. Completing the wind projects by 2020 will allow the company to use federal production tax credits to provide net cost savings to customers over the life of the projects.

The cost of the four new wind projects is estimated at approximately $1.5 billion, which is significantly less on a per-megawatt basis than when the new wind and transmission plan was first announced last April. The per-megawatt reduction in project costs helps make the Energy Vision 2020 initiative lower cost compared to other resource alternatives, such as market purchases, to meet forecasted customer energy needs.

Pending approval from state regulatory commissions, acquisition of rights of way, and receipt of permits, construction of the new wind and transmission projects is expected to begin in 2019.

Douglas County solar projects receive $330,000 boost from Pacific Power Blue Sky - 02/19/18

Grants for solar installations at Tri City Water and Sanitation and Saving Grace Pet Adoption will save agencies money, reduce carbon footprints and paw prints

ROSEBURG, Ore.--Douglas County's only full service pet shelter and adoption center and the waste water treatment plant for the Myrtle Creek area will both have new solar installations by the end of the year thanks in part to funding from Pacific Power customers who voluntarily participate in the Blue Sky renewable energy program.

"Our Blue Sky customers put their dollars to work in their communities," said Sam Carter, Pacific Power's regional business manager for Douglas County. "Not only will these facilities supply renewable energy, but they are helping increase the visibility and adoption of renewable technology. We are proud to be part of this important partnership with communities and our Blue Sky customers."

The Douglas County projects are part of up to $1.1 million in new renewable energy investment in 2018, bringing more than 675 kilowatts of new renewable energy capacity online. Since 2006, Pacific Power Blue Sky customers have helped fund the installation of 101 community-based projects totaling 8.8 megawatts of renewable energy generation capacity, demonstrating the viability of renewable energy in their communities with more than $10 million in investment during that time.

Tri --City Joint Water and Sanitary

The Tri-City Joint Water and Sanitary Authority will use a $200,000 grant to install and operate a 287 kilowatt capacity solar project on land adjacent its plant in Myrtle Creek. The authority serves about 4,000 residents and businesses in the area, supplying drinking water and treating waste water.

The project, planned to be complete by late summer, would supply the authority's electrical needs, thereby saving a significant amount of cash flow that can be devoted to reducing overhead for water and sewer customers.

"We are very excited about this project and the benefits it will bring to our customers and the environment," Paul Wilburn, district manager. "We hope to save more than $30,000 per year in electric bills which helps us keep costs down for our customers."


Saving Grace Inc.

Saving Grace, Inc. is the only full service animal shelter in Douglas County. Since 2002, the nonprofit has operated the county animal shelter and has adopted out, transferred to another shelter or rescue, or returned to owner over 28,000 pets.

In 2016 alone, employing more than 200 volunteers, Saving Grace brought together 1036 dogs, cats and other animals with happy adoptive families as well as reuniting 384 pets with their worried owners. Thanks to the efforts of hardworking staff and volunteers, over 60 percent of the stray dogs found are returned to their owners, a figure more than twice the ASPCA's national estimate of 26 percent.

The 43.2 kilowatt project made possible by the $130,000 grant will allow Saving Grace to save more than $5,000 per year in electric bills and reduce its carbon paw print.

"This is a project that we've wanted to do for quite some time and now it's possible thanks to Blue Sky customers," said Wendy Kang, executive director. "As a non-profit animal shelter, every dollar saved on expenses helps us provide that much more care for animals. We plan to be done with construction this summer in time for our annual fundraising event in August so that we can show off our new solar panels."

Clean energy projects in Portland receive $373,000 from Pacific Power Blue Sky customers - 02/19/18

St. Charles Parish and Bridge City housing get grants that help them be more sustainable and devote more resources to their core missions

PORTLAND, Ore.--A century-old Northeast Portland parish and a new affordable housing project in Southwest Portland will both be getting solar projects to help reduce energy costs thanks in part to funding from Pacific Power customers who voluntarily participate in the Blue Sky renewable energy program.

"Our Blue Sky customers put their dollars to work in their communities," said Sheila Holden, Pacific Power's regional business manager for Portland. "Not only will these facilities supply renewable energy, but they are helping increase the visibility and adoption of renewable technology. We are proud to be part of this important partnership with communities and our Blue Sky customers to both empower technology applications and leverage resources."

The two Portland projects are part of $1.1 million in new renewable energy investment from Blue Sky customers in 2018, bringing more than 675 kilowatts of new renewable energy capacity online. Since 2006, Pacific Power Blue Sky customers have helped fund the installation of 101 community-based projects totaling 8.8 megawatts of renewable energy generation capacity, demonstrating the viability of renewable energy in their communities with more than $10 million in investment during that time.

St. Charles Parish, Portland
At St. Charles, plans call for a minimum 78 kilowatt array atop the school building, which was originally constructed in 1950. The project, which may include a storage component, will supply a high percentage of the building's electricity needs, saving the parish up to $15,000 a year in power bills and making it nearly 75 percent renewable. The $300,000 Blue Sky grant will be combined with funds from other sources.

St. Charles, located on NE 42nd Avenue near Killingsworth, is partnering with Verde, a Cully neighborhood nonprofit that builds environmental wealth with low-income people and people of color, and Neil Kelly Solar. The project is scheduled to be in service by the end of 2018.

"St. Charles Catholic Parish is very much in tune with Pope Francis and his urging that all of us need to take care of the world that gives us life", says Father.Elwin Schwab, parish priest. "Our parish of 350 families recycles most everything, and encourages its people to care for this earth. This solar project solidifies our environmental commitment while allowing us to focus more of our resources on our community and faith outreach work."

Carolina Iraheta Gonzales, Living Cully Community Energy Advocate, added: "The solar project at St. Charles Church is one of six community-based energy projects that we have identified in our Living Cully Community Energy Plan. Pacific Power's Blue Sky customers will fund our first project. We are excited to learn the skills to develop more energy projects in Cully to serve low-income families and community organizations. Verde and our Living Cully Partners believe that renewable energy projects must align with our anti-displacement efforts to help low-income families bring down energy bills and stay in their homes."

Bridge City Housing, Portland
Bridge City is developing is a mixed-income and mixed-use multifamily project located in the South Waterfront district in Portland. The project involves two buildings, one building on the east side of the site offering 177 market rate apartments and a building on the west side of the site offering 203 affordable apartments

A $72,324 Blue Sky grant will help fund a 39.7 kilowatt solar array which will power the west building's communal spaces including the lobby, leasing office, and garage. The solar array will be located on the roof of the west building.

"The solar array supports our commitment to environmentally sound developments that benefit residents and neighborhoods," said Nicole Peterson, director of development PNW for BRIDGE Housing. "The Blue Sky funding for this project also advances our goal of increasing the use of renewable energy solutions and energy efficiency across the portfolio in order to reduce emissions."

Solar, low-impact hydro projects in NW communities to receive $1.1 million boost from Pacific Power Blue Sky customers
Renewable energy program making sustainable investments in communities for more than a decade

PORTLAND, Ore.--Several solar projects and one low-impact hydro project will soon help reduce energy costs for community organizations in 10 communities across the Northwest, thanks in part to funding from Pacific Power customers who voluntarily participate in the Blue Sky renewable energy program.

Altogether, Blue Sky customers are placing $1.1 million in new renewable energy investment in 2018, bringing more than 675 kilowatts of new renewable energy capacity online. Since 2006, Pacific Power Blue Sky customers have helped fund the installation of 101 community-based projects totaling 8.8 megawatts of renewable energy generation capacity, demonstrating the viability of renewable energy in their communities with more than $10 million in investment during that time.

Projects funded over the years include wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, low-impact hydro and wave technologies.

"Our Blue Sky customers put their dollars to work in their communities," said Cory Scott, Pacific Power's director of customer solutions. "Not only will these facilities supply renewable energy, but they are helping increase the visibility and adoption of renewable technology. We are proud to be part of this important partnership with communities and our Blue Sky customers."

"The Blue Sky program has one of the highest number of customer participants you'll find nationwide," added Berit Kling, project manager. "One of the reasons the Blue Sky program is so popular is the element of choice. Blue Sky customers choose to support renewable energy above and beyond Pacific Power's own growing renewable portfolio and projects like these provide customers with tangible connections to the program. In addition to greening their energy use by supporting newly developed renewable energy generation Blue Sky customers are helping fund new on-the-ground, renewable projects in their own communities that strongly contribute to the local economy."

Pacific Power brings high-tech smart meters to Lincoln County - 02/07/18

Pacific Power media hotline: Feb. 7, 2018
1-800-570-5838 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Pacific Power brings high-tech smart meters to Lincoln County

The new meters, installed free of charge, help shorten outages, provide daily usage data, and keep Oregon a leader in using clean, renewable energy.

LINCOLN CITY, Ore. --Pacific Power is bringing more efficient and effective smart meters to residents and businesses of Lincoln County, replacing thousands of aging electric meters

About 12,000 new meters will be installed in Lincoln County. The coastal community is the second in the state to get the new meters. In all, Pacific Power will replace 590,000 meters in communities across the state from now through fall 2019.

The new smart meters will:

* Instantly track outages, meaning faster service response and shorter outages overall.
* Let customers view their power usage hour-by-hour, so they can adjust their activity to reduce both their carbon footprint and bill.
* Provide businesses with detailed usage reporting which will help them cut costs and make investments in items that help their business grow.
* Update the grid to work more efficiently and better integrate renewable power sources.
"Installing smart meters is a key step toward the power grid of the future here in Oregon and our customers throughout the state all benefit," said Stefan Bird, Pacific Power president and CEO. "By vastly improving our meter technology, we can deliver power more reliably and shorten outages, save costs, and allow for better management of renewable sources."
"It is very exciting to have the new digital smart meters coming to Lincoln City," said Lori Arce-Torres, executive director of the Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce. "Having the information at our fingertips allows us to manage our costs as well as makes us smarter consumers. By being aware of our energy usage, it can not only save our bottom line but also gets us closer to seeing a clean energy future."
More than 70 million smart meters have been installed nationwide, which means half of all households in the U.S. have them. Smart meters are a key component to updating the energy grid originally built for technology from 100 years ago. They also help Pacific Power hold down operating costs, improve customer service and reliability while maintaining the highest standards of security and customer privacy.
Access to daily energy usage information will be available to customers via a secure website. This near real-time energy usage information will let customers better understand what is driving their electric bills and help them make decisions that can save energy and money. This capability will come about six weeks after a new meter is installed.

"We are connecting our small communities throughout Oregon in a way that improves the reliability and efficiency of the grid, both at home and at work," said Bird. "With smart meter technology now mature, proven and available at competitive prices, we can deliver the benefits without any additional cost to customers."

Here's what customers can expect during the installation process:

* Customers will be notified before installation through the mail and will receive detailed information about the new smart meters. Reminder calls will be made to customers as their scheduled installation date approaches.

* Pacific Power's authorized installer, Aclara, will arrive between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. to make installations. Installers will drive vehicles and carry badges that identify them as an authorized contractor of Pacific Power. Unless an electric meter is inside, they will not need to enter customer homes.

* During the installation, Pacific Power technicians will remove the old meter, install the new meter, restore service and verify the new meter is working properly. This process will require a brief power outage (less than five minutes). The technicians will leave a door hanger to let customers know they were there, and successfully installed the new smart meter.

* Pacific Power will manually read the newly installed smart meters for as long as it takes to confirm everything is working correctly. After meter installations are complete in the area, meter reading will happen remotely.

* Approximately six weeks following the installation when all area installs are complete, customers can sign in to their Pacific Power account to access the newly available usage data. Customers can sign up for their web account here.

If customers have any concerns, have not received the proper series of notices or have any reason to think a notification is not legitimate, customers should hang up and call Pacific Power's customer service at 1-800-221-7070 immediately to verify whether they are scheduled for an installation.

Additional information, including installation updates are available at www.pacificpower.net/smartmeter. Customers can also call 866-869-8520 for help with any questions.
