Lake Oswego, a community of 36,000, became an EPA Green Power Community in 2009. A two-month community-wide Green Power Challenge was kicked off in August 2009, with a goal to sign up 300 new residents and businesses to purchase green power from the community’s electricity provider. With strong support from Mayor Jack D. Hoffman, the City Council, and the Sustainability Advisory Board, businesses and citizens responded favorably, exceeding the Challenge goals. In total, 336 Lake Oswego residents and 20 businesses signed up for green power during the Challenge. The community has continued to support green power since the 2009 Challenge, with current use at more than 9 percent of the overall electricity used.
