Energy challenges come in all shapes and sizes, and solutions aren’t one-size-fits-all. That’s why we support community-based organizations that understand the unique needs of the communities they serve to offer customized solutions.
THE POWER OF ENERGY
Using less energy or generating renewable energy pays off in many ways, from creating local jobs and protecting affordable housing to revitalizing town centers, reducing carbon emissions and helping cities reach their climate or sustainability goals. Energy Trust can help turn your ideas into action.
Engaging with community organizations through our Working Together Grants
This new, competitive grant opportunity provides funding up to $10,000 for nonprofit organizations interested in pursuing activities that help diverse customers and communities save energy or use clean, renewable energy. Through these grants, we will extend the benefits of energy efficiency and clean, renewable energy to more customers.
SUPPORTING PORTLAND CLEAN ENERGY COMMUNITY BENEFITS FUND
Portlanders have committed to funding clean energy projects that prioritize racial and social justice through the city’s Portland Clean Energy Community Benefits Fund (PCEF). We can help grant applicants plan projects and make their funding go further.
REBUILDING FROM WILDFIRES
Oregon communities recovering from devastating wildfires need long-term support to rebuild. We offer incentives and resources to support rebuilding homes and commercial buildings with resiliency, energy efficiency and solar in mind.
