Joining Blue Sky means supporting local renewable energy and lifting communities. Our calculator makes it easy to estimate how much you would pay to match all or part of your electricity use with renewable energy like wind and solar. Just type in your monthly electricity usage, and the calculator will do the rest!
If you choose to join the Blue Sky Block program at the amount of (or kWh), you would pay in addition to your monthly bill:
per month (fixed rate)
Based on the average monthly use in , this would match approximately % of that household’s electricity use with renewable energy.
reduce your carbon footprint by lbs of CO2e
travel miles in an electric vehicle
It's easy to make a positive impact with Blue Sky:
Participants have collectively reduced their emissions by over 10 billion pounds of CO2e since 2000.
Support new local
clean energy facilities
The Blue Sky community has helped bring more wind and solar projects to Oregon.
Easily support renewable energy through your monthly utility bill.
*Your participation in the Blue Sky program helps to reduce the carbon footprint associated with your electricity use. Carbon footprint reduction based on the difference between the 2021 Blue Sky mix and PacifiCorp fuel mix (Source: PacifiCorp 2019). The minimal positive N20 and CH4 emissions associated with the generation of renewable energy from biomass resources are included in the calculation; where facility-specific emissions data is not available state-level data is used (Source: Generation Integrated Database (eGRID) 2018). Green-e® Energy does not certify or verify carbon emissions claims or methodologies for calculating emissions related to biomass.
