Ecoroofs are vegetated roof systems that absorb rain to reduce stormwater runoff. Ecoroofs also improve air quality and save energy. Through the incentive program that began in 2008, the city approved $1.9-million for 135 projects, resulting in 10 acres of new ecoroof. There are currently 568 greenroofs in Portland covering over 38 acres.
