Clean Fuels for Oregon
One of OCN’s priorities, protecting Oregon’s Clean Fuels Program, is a critical policy to ensure Oregon meets its greenhouse gas reduction goals, and is top of Climate Solutions’ agenda this session.
The Clean Fuels Now campaign brings together businesses and public interest organizations in support of this critical policy, including most recently, the Oregon Business Association. Please join us by adding your company to the list of endorsers. Or contact Ashley Henry to find out how you can get involved in this campaign.
Say NO to coal
Oregon should take every opportunity to shift investments from coal to clean energy, and avoid any further investments that prolong the life of coal plants in our state. Climate Solutions supports legislation that keeps our state moving in that direction
We are also a partner in the Power Past Coal coalition, helping to organize and support efforts to stop the export of coal from Northwest ports. Learn more about Power Past Coal .
Say YES to energy efficiency
Governor Kitzhaber's 10 Year Energy Action Plan calls on Oregonians to build on our strong legacy of energy efficiency success. Our state needs policies that promote more energy efficiency investments within buildings, especially our homes. Energy disclosure for homeowners is an excellent way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase value for homeowners, as well as support the growing green building industry in Oregon.
New Energy Cities in Oregon
Our New Energy Cities team is excited to build upon its prior work in Hillsboro, Albany, and with Clean Energy Works Oregon by partnering with Governor Kitzhaber’s office to help make its Cutting Edge Communities strategy succeed in 2013.
