Gresham Plant To Use Renewable Wind Energy Credits

TOLEDO, Ohio, May 15,2008 -- Owens Corning announced today that it has been named a partner in the Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership, a voluntary program that encourages organizations to buy green power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with purchased electricity use.

To qualify, Owens Corning purchased 25,000 MWh of renewable energy credits that are 100 percent wind generated to offset the electricity consumption of the company's foam insulation plant in Gresham, Ore. The wind energy will be Green-e certified by the Center for Resource Solutions. Green-e is the leading independent certification and verification program in the United States for renewable energy and greenhouse gas emission reductions in the retail market and helps ensure the environmental value of Owens Corning's purchase.
