Rural Energy Development Assistance

If you are a farmer, agricultural producer or rural small business in Oregon or Washington, we can help you with your own renewable energy or efficiency project! Through partnerships with USDA, Pierce County Conservation District, Clackamas Community College, and University of Oregon’s RARE AmeriCorps program, we offer consultations, feasibility studies, and grant writing support services.

Tribal Energy

Our Tribal Energy program has been very successful in bringing energy savings to those that need it the most. Whether swapping out “energy hog” refrigerators, helping a tribe create a renewable energy plan, or training staff at tribal housing offices, we have a proven track record of engaging with Native American tribes to foster energy sovereignty and self-sufficiency.
