At Energy Trust, we value collaboration to find innovative solutions and achieve results. Our people are learners and doers, the perfect mix of professional and friendly, smart and respectful. When it comes to delivering on our mission, our dedicated team goes all in.
We are on a mission to build a sustainable energy future for all 1.7 million utility customers we serve in Oregon and Southwest Washington. It is our responsibility to ensure that all customers can directly benefit from our services, including people with low and moderate incomes, communities of color, smaller businesses and rural communities. Through this work, we help grow Oregon’s economy, keep energy costs as low as possible and improve our air quality along the way.

In order to innovate and succeed, we ask questions and learn from our experiences and from listening to diverse perspectives. We strive to create a culture of inclusivity and teamwork, where people are supported and inspired. If you’re someone who cares about making a difference, we want to hear from you and we invite you to explore job opportunities with us.” – Mike Colgrove, executive director
