Green Power Calculator
How it Works...
Trying to decide which renewable option to choose? Use this calculator to find out the environmental impact of your renewable power choices.
- Step 1: Select if you’re a residential or business customer. The business data is for small (Schedule 32 on your bill) businesses only.
- Step 2: Enter your monthly energy use in kilowatt hours (kWh) from your bill. Or you can enter your approximate monthly bill.
- Step 3: Select Green SourceSM or the number of units of Clean WindSM.
- Step 4: Choose if you’d like to add Habitat Support.
The calculator will dynamically show you the estimated cost per month, the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) you would avoid and how that equates to trees planted or miles not driven.
Source: 2012 data for Green Source and 2011 data for Basic Service mix plus one unit of Clean Wind. Latest data available for Oregon System mix from Oregon Department of Energy Data for PGE System Mix may differ from Oregon Resource Mix; check PortlandGeneral.com for details. All percentages are approximate and may not add up to 100% due to rounding. “New” refers to power generated from facilities that became operational after July 1999.
