Evergreen Wind Energy Scam
Recently, some of our members have been contacted about the "opportunity" to buy wind energy from Arcadia Power. The program is called Evergreen. What do you get for your monthly payment? Absolutely NOTHING! Douglas Electric Cooperative is in no way affiliated with Arcadia Power or Evergreen Wind, nor do we endorse these companies or this program. The pitch is that you can feel good about buying "green", when in essence you are simply lining someone elses pockets with your "green" cash!
If you want to feel good about green power, feel good about this: your cooperative's power resource is 85% green, and over 95% carbon-free! We do have a green power program that supports our Coffin Butte Landfill Gas project up in Corvallis, but honestly we are about as "green" as it gets.
If you have any questions about this, or are contacted by Arcadia or Evergreen, please give us a call. We are happy to help clear the air about wind energy and this "offer".
