The Northwest Solar Cooperative* (NWSC) offers to purchase the rights to the environmental attributes or â€œGreen Tagsâ€ derived from grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) or wind energy at a rate ranging from $0.02 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) to $0.10/kWh. Residential and non-residential owners of PV and wind-energy systems installed after June 1, 2002, in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana are eligible to participate in the Green Tag Purchase Program. The contract term does not have a fixed duration. Interested participants sign an agreement with NWSC to sell their Green Tags, report any system failures and submit AC production meter readings each year. The NWSC agrees to make payments to participants by March 31 of the year following production of Green Tags. *The NWSC is a not-for-profit service operated by Solar Oregon. It purchases Green Tags from many individual private sellers throughout the region, aggregates them, and sells them in one package to 3 Degrees Energy who, in turn, sells them to wholesale customers and consumers.
