Industrial Gas Company Switches to Wind-Generated Electricity at Oregon Plant
Linde North America signed a contract with Portland General Electric to supply wind-generated power for a significant portion of its electric requirements at its Hillsboro, Oregon, air separation unit, which makes ultra-high purity gaseous nitrogen and oxygen.
Linde’s request to purchase wind-generated power under a special state program was approved by Oregon’s Department of Energy. As one of Portland General Electric’s 20 largest customers, Linde’s Energy Affairs team was able to identify an opportunity to displace a substantial portion of its fossil-fuel generated electric supply with wind power by purchasing renewable energy from the local utility, to maximize the amount of renewable power supplied to the plant. As a result, Linde has been awarded Gold status under PGE’s Clean Wind Program.
