About Us

Mission: We partner with communities to build an equitable clean energy future

Vision: A Northwest region 100% powered by clean energy that shifts power and wealth to marginalized communities

Our Theory of Change- we engage at the community level to catalyze more clean energy projects to build more power and wealth for marginalized communities

Many communities in our region are already experiencing the human costs of climate change. Historical injustices, coupled with rising temperatures, put low-income communities, Native American tribes, and communities of color disproportionately at risk.

At Spark Northwest we believe creating communities powered by locally controlled clean energy is central to promoting an environmentally just society. Through distributed energy projects that allow for community-level participation and equitable ownership, we can reduce energy burden while building wealth for disadvantaged communities.

Through renewable energy projects and policy reform we seek to:

  • Ensure everyone has access to affordable clean energy
  • Increase the amount of distributed clean 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
