About Us

Northwest SEED is now Spark Northwest! This new name, and its accompanying bright spark logo, better reflects our vision to expand affordable, locally-controlled clean energy throughout the region, and doubles down on our longstanding commitment to help communities reduce their dependency on high-carbon fuels. Spark Northwest is not a departure from Northwest SEED; rather it is a deepening of our action-oriented response to citizen engagement and big-picture systems change.


Spark Northwest accelerates the shift to clean energy one community at a time. Our programs make affordable, locally-controlled clean energy more accessible for all. Through renewable energy projects and policy reform, we envision a region powered entirely by clean energy. Our programs seek to:

  • Decrease the cost of renewable energy technologies
  • Increase the amount of distributed energy to achieve a Pacific Northwest that is 100% powered by renewable energy
  • Increase access to clean energy for middle- and low-income households
  • Grow local economies and increase community resiliency through locally sourced energy projects
