Leading by Example

City of Portland leads by example. We make City-owned facilities as energy efficient as possible through mechanisms like the City Energy Challenge. City of Portland policy directs bureaus to invest in energy efficiency projects that have paybacks of 10 years or less. We also design innovative program models for residents and businesses that other cities have learned from and replicated, such as Solarize Portland.
