Megawatt-hours sold by Portland General Electric increased just 0.9% in 2005 to 18.9 million, while NW Natural sold 1,165 million therms, a 1.8% increase over 2004. State power generation has been fueled increasingly by natural gas: 16.8% of our power portfolio in 2004 compared to only 7.4% in 2000. Hydropower still dominated at 68.9%, but declined from 81.1% in 2000. Other renewables, such as wind power, supplied 3.5% of 2004 power, up from 2.1% in 2000. As of July, a significantly greater share of Oregon electricity went to commercial and industrial customers (66%) compared to the United States as a whole (59%), reflecting mighty hydroelectric resources and a relatively sparse population.

My daughter turned 18 last week, and for her birthday I got her a Car2Go membership. Not to label myself a disruptor or anything, but it felt like a groundbreaking moment. The two of us, mother and child, were participating in a new teen rite of passage: Instead of handing over the car keys, I handed over a car-sharing card — with the caveat that she not use the gift as her own personal car service.
