DOE again ranks PGE No. 1 in U.S. for sales of renewable energy

PGE has had the most renewable energy customers since 2009, and this is the second year the company also sold the most renewable energy.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland General Electric (NYSE: POR) has more renewable power customers and sold more renewable energy than any other utility in the United States for the second year in a row, according to the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory. NREL released its ranking of the nation's top utility green pricing programs.


PGE has had the most renewable energy customers since 2009, and this is the second year the company also sold the most renewable energy.

At the end of 2013, PGE had nearly 100,000 business and residential renewable customers, or 12.4 percent of its eligible customers, enrolled in a renewable power program. PGE sold more than 1 million megawatt hours of renewable energy, nearly 200 thousand more than the second-place utility. In February PGE was the first – and remains the only electric utility to date – to exceed 100,000 customers enrolled in its renewable power program.

"The success of this voluntary program reflects more than 100 thousand customers' commitment to sustainable choices that lead to a greener future," said Carol Dillin, PGE's vice president for customer strategies and business development.

NREL rankings are based on raw numbers for calendar year 2013 and are not adjusted for the size of the utility. The lists of leading utility green pricing programs can be accessed at www.PortlandGeneral.com/NREL.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
