In the past, the city of Beaverton has launched a successful renewable power challenge that resulted in its designation as a green power community.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency also announced a nationwide green power challenge in 2011 to encourage the more than 30 communities in 11 states, including Oregon, to use renewable energy and fight climate change.
Although the challenge ended in September, you can still choose a renewable option. Challenge results will be announced Nov. 30.
When you sign up for renewable energy, you help create cleaner air, more salmon and steelhead in our streams and the growth of new wind farms.
