Event description

Description

The Tucker Maxon Renewable Energy Inquiry and Engineering Workshop is a FREE full-day professional development training made possible by the PGE Renewable Development Fund and CE. This inquiry-based, hands-on science and engineering training program offers a review of the science, technology, and classroom applications of wind energy and other renewables applicable for all grade bands.

About the Sponsor: Portland General Electric's leadership in renewable power dates back to the 1990s when the company agreed to purchase the entire output of Oregon's first major wind farm. In 1999, PGE was one of the first utilities to voluntarily offer a renewable power product to customers and later became the first utility in the nation to include a fish habitat option. Portland General Electric (PGE) has operated one of the most successful Green Power Programs in the nation, and offers a renewable option to all customers. The program has grown to more than 160,000 customers. Since 2008, PGE's renewable energy power program has been ranked #1 in the U.S. for sales of renewable power to residential customers and for overall volume of renewable power sold by the U.S. DOE's National Renewable Energy Labs.
