As a nonprofit organization investing utility customer funds, Energy Trust conducts an open annual budgeting and planning process. We have drafted our budget for next year and invite your feedback and comments.

Comments on the draft 2019 budget and 2019-2020 action plan are accepted through Wednesday, October 31, 2018. You can view an on-demand webinar presentation on the budget, delivered by Executive Director Michael Colgrove, and access the draft budget and action plan on our budget web page. This page also includes instructions on how to submit your comments. 

Feedback on the 2019 budget will guide our outreach and program strategies that help Oregon and southwest Washington utility customers save energy and generate renewable power. The budget and action plans are developed collaboratively with our utility partners Portland General ElectricPacific PowerNW NaturalCascade Natural Gas and Avista. Through this collaborative planning effort, we are helping people and businesses benefit from the lowest cost and cleanest energy available–energy efficiency and renewable power. Projects and actions resulting from our plans will save money on customer utility bills, reduce carbon emissions and improve local economies.
