Renewable Energy Project Tour

Coyote Trails

On October 3, 2015, Pacific Power hosted its 12th annual Blue Sky renewable energy project tour in southern Oregon, offering participants the opportunity to learn about projects supported by the Blue Sky program.

The tour included three sites, beginning at Coyote Trails Nature Center, a local nonprofit focusing on environmental education. The facility recently installed a 36-panel solar pavilion, with support from Blue Sky community project funds. Participants next visited Lone Pine Creek, a native fish habitat restoration project managed by the Lomakatsi Restoration Project, and funded in part by Blue Sky participants that select the Habitat option. The tour concluded with the 3.2-megawatt Dry Creek Landfill gas-to-energy project which generates electricity from the methane produced by the landfill and is supported by Blue Sky Usage and Habitat customers.

Along the way, participants learned about trends in the renewable energy industry and were able to talk with experts in the field throughout the tour.
