Oregon Clean Energy Opportunity

We did it! Energy Affordability passes.
Now, let’s pass 100% Clean Energy for All & Healthy Homes!

Thanks to your efforts, last week the Energy Affordability Act (HB 2475) passed the Oregon Senate with bipartisan support. Once the Governor signs this bill into law, the Public Utility Commission will be able to create rate structures to reduce energy costs for low-income Oregonians. And, organizations representing environmental justice communities will be supported to participate in energy decision making at the Public Utility Commission.

TAKE ACTION!

Tell your Legislator: Yes on HB 2021 & HB 2842! The Energy Affordability Act (HB 2475) passed the Oregon Legislature and now is the time to get the other two Oregon Clean Energy Opportunity policies across the finish line! Contact your Oregon legislators to show your support for 100% Clean Energy for All (HB 2021) and Healthy Homes (HB 2842). Please take a little bit of time to customize your message with a personal story or connection to the issues.

Passing this historic bill would not have been possible without widespread support from across Oregon. During our campaign’s constituent lobbying call to action, over 150 people from our communities met with 56 different legislative offices, nearly two-thirds of all the Oregon House & Senate members! To all those who participated in meetings, shared your story, and spread the word on how important the Oregon Clean Energy Opportunity campaign is — thank you!

We’ve passed one bill, and there are two more to go. Now, it’s time to show Oregon legislators the broad support for 100% Clean Energy for All (HB 2021) and Healthy Homes (HB 2842). Together, these bills will create good jobs in clean energy and make homes healthier and less expensive to heat and cool. Can you send a message to your Oregon Representative and Senator to express your support for these environmental justice policies?

Thank you for taking action!
