As you probably already know, Parks & Rec has put up the Christmas lights in town... but did you know that the lights are green with help from Pacific Power’s Blue Sky renewable energy program customers?  By supporting renewable energy to match the electricity powering the lights, they are helping us reduce our carbon footprint by about the same amount as taking 3 cars off of the road for a year or planting 426 trees.
