The Portland Clean Energy Fund is Portland’s chance to become a national model for transitioning our city to renewable energy in a manner that directly supports racial justice and equality. From funding new rooftop solar and energy efficiency projects to a robust job-training program for underserved communities, the Portland Clean Energy Fund is how we can turn progressive grassroots values into tangible benefits for Portlanders and our climate. We cannot count on our federal government to make the progress we need, we must take local action.

With a flood of support from over 150 community organizations, businesses, elected officials, and faith leaders, we know we can win even though big corporations will put up a fight. It's time that corporations pay their fair share and invest in Portland communities.
