100% Renewables

Multnomah County and the City of Portland both passed resolutions to transition to 100% renewable energy, with fantastic public support. Thank you to everyone who sent a comment on these proposals, showed up to rallies, and testified at City Hall and the County Commission!

These resolutions complement the City of Portland’s 2015 groundbreaking fossil fuel infrastructure ban by opposing new sources of fossil fuel generation to power our communities–including PGE’s proposed Carty natural gas power plants–while committing to clean, renewable energy sources like wind, solar, geothermal and wave energy.

Communities like Greensburg, Kansas and Georgetown, Texas have already shown that the transition to 100% renewable energy is possible. In fact, 25 U.S. cities have passed policies committing to 100% renewable energy. On June 1st, the City of Portland and Multnomah County both joined these climate leaders in standing up for our renewable energy future.
