Solar Forward

  • Your tax-deductible gift will help reach our goal to install solar on Oliver P. Lent Elementary School in SE Portland.

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, and more projects on public-owned buildings are in the works. Your contribution will make it possible.


Introducing Solar Forward

A project of the City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Portland Parks & Recreation, Portland Public Schools and Solar Oregon.
