Together, We Equal a Cleaner Environment, a Stronger Economy, a Better Future
At Energy Trust of Oregon, we believe in the additive power of collaboration. Side-by-side work with individuals, businesses, 2,400 contractors and professionals and our four allied utilities have translated into lower energy costs, new renewable power and a stronger environment and economy for our state.
By adding energy efficiency and renewable power to the equation, we are all creating a better future in Oregon.
Since 2002, Energy Trust services, cash incentives and creative customer engagement strategies have supported commercial, industrial and residential customers investing in energy solutions that control costs, reduce energy waste, create more comfortable spaces to live and work and supply renewable power for our communities. The results tally up to $1 billion saved on participant utility bills.
