Oregon building owners on the path to net zero

Energy Trust launched the Path to Net Zero pilot in 2009 to help building owners move toward net-zero onsite energy use and to collect information that could help future building owners achieve this goal. Thanks to a small group of pioneers who signed on to participate in the pilot, we were able to prove that net zero is a goal for everyone—and one we’re closer to reaching each day.

Pilot projects included:

  • Hood River Middle School Music & Science Building (view video)
  • ecoFLATS (view video)
  • June Key Delta House Community Center (view video)
  • Chemeketa Community College Health Sciences Complex
  • Portland Community College Newberg Center
  • XVI Vernon Place Development Project
