Solar Forward

  • Solar Forward team at their first energy event at Ecotrust.

Solar Forward gives Portlanders a way to help fund the development of new, local renewable energy systems. Grant funds from the Oregon Community Foundation kickstarted installation of the first 10-kilowatt solar electric system at Southwest Community Center. With generous support from additional funders, Solar Forward installed a second 10-kilowatt system at Oliver P. Lent Elementary School in southeast Portland. A third system in the Cully neighborhood at Hacienda Community Development Corporation's Ortiz Center is underway. A 10-kilowatt system will be installed on top of the futsal court in fall 2014.
