||The Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) was founded in
1998 to support watershed restoration programs and develop new
sources of renewable energy. Funding for these efforts has been
provided in a way that would be called unusual for most
foundations. BEF, a not-for-profit organization, markets green
power products to public utilities, businesses, government
agencies and individuals.
||The Bonneville Environmental Foundation is a charitable and
nonprofit public benefit corporation dedicated to encouraging
and funding projects that develop and/or apply clean,
environmentally preferred renewable power and acquire,
maintain, preserve, restore and/or sustain fish and wildlife
habitat within the Pacific Northwest.
BEF's "Green Tags" is a certificate product.
||99%+ wind, up to 1% solar, in WA, OR and WY.
All BEF products support new
renewable energy generation, whether wind, solar or other future
Green Tags are available at all times to all purchasers.
BEF "Green Tags" certificates are Green-e certified. However,
the reseller in Maine, Maine Interfaith Power & Light, is
not Green-e certified.
BEF Green Tags are themselves zero-emission. In
addition, by virtue of their grid location, BEF's
projects help offset CO2 emissions in
areas otherwise heavily dependent upon coal.
In addition to the public health and social benefits from
zero-emission wind generation, wind turbines use less than 5% of the
land area for electricity generation than do other generation
facilities. This small "footprint" allows more productive land to be
used for other purposes (e.g., farming, recreation, etc.).
