ABSTRACT
The article informs that biopower company Energy Trust of Oregon Inc. has launched a biopower program. This program includes a request for proposals to turn organic waste into renewable energy. The program will grant up to $4.7 million in financial incentives for biopower that can deliver electricity to Pacific Power Inc. and Portland General Electric Co., using landfill gas, wood chips, dairy manure, biogas from sewage treatment and other related methods. Biomass energy resources comprise the third major component of Energy Trust's renewable resource program. The company's solar program has doubled the number of solar arrays in Oregon in just two years and wind projects have substantially increased wind energy production in Oregon. The firm expects to gain up to 3.9 average megawatts of energy, enough to power over 2,100 homes from projects funded through this request for proposals. Biomass already provides a significant amount of energy in Oregon. The request for proposals is available at www.energytrust.org/biopower.
