Oregon PSR helps pass Portland Clean Energy Initiative

Oregon PSR helped pass the landmark Portland Clean Energy Initiative, the nation’s first-ever clean energy fund for climate justice. The Initiative will raise $30 million annually to invest in renewable energy, energy efficiency, home weatherization, living-wage job training, local sustainable food production and more. Low-income residents and communities of color will be the first beneficiaries. Oregon PSR sat on the community-led campaign steering committee, organized and trained hundreds of volunteers to collect signatures to get the measure on the ballot, and phonebanked and canvassed for the Initiative. Huge congratulations for this important success in limiting climate change and advancing clean, safe renewable energy solutions!
