|Short history||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.|
|Philosophy||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.
|Sources||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 projects.
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.).
