Green Chair Renewable Energy Program

How You Can Support our Renewable Energy initiative
Mt. Ashland will provide each visitor to the ski area the opportunity to invest in the Green Chair Renewable Energy program by upgrading a regular season pass to a Donor Pass with a minimum donation of $40 or a $1 lift ticket upgrade. The passes and tickets will identify the guest as a :Keep It Strong" donor supporting the Green Chair Renewable Energy program. Mt. Ashland encourages all visitors to participate in the ski areaís vision to become completely independent of energy derived from fossil fuels.
What is the program about?
Mt. Ashland, through its Green Chair Renewable Energy Program, is purchasing enough renewable energy to offset 100% of its annual electrical use. The ski area has signed a contract to purchase 460,000 kilowatt hours from the Bonneville Environmental Foundation in Portland, Oregon. All of Mt. Ashland's investments will support the development of renewable wind power.  Evening Action Mt A
Mt. Ashland was one of the first ski areas in the nation to offset 100% of their electrical use through the purchase of renewable energy credits.
Mt. Ashlandís Green Chair program helps the Bonneville Environmental Foundation reduce our nationís dependency on fossil fuels as our primary sources of generating electricity. The renewable energy credits, also called Green Tags, purchased by the ski area will eliminate the release of 600,000 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. EPA Green Partner Logo
