The Port of Portland (OR) is a regional transportation public agency that owns and operates four airports, three maritime cargo terminals, a river dredge, and engages in property development. The primary driver behind the Port's commitment to purchase green power was to meet its corporate environmental goals and objectives by purchasing energy from sustainable sources. This action is consistent with the Port's corporate environmental philosophy to reduce its environmental footprint while supporting regional development of renewable energy resources. Bill Wyatt, Executive Director, notes that the Port's use of green power is "a way to purchase our electric energy from a sustainable source and support a vital and emerging industry." The Port of Portland was the first port authority to participate in the Green Power Partnership.
