Ecoroof Incentive, 2013 Symposium, and Rock on the Roof!


Ecoroof Incentive is now available year-round!

The ecoroof incentive is again open for applications, and we'll be accepting them on a rolling basis until June 2013. This means that you can apply anytime between now and June 1. The purpose of this is to expedite the application process for people interested in having an ecoroof on their project - applicants will find out within 30 days of submitting the application. The incentive pays $5 per square foot for new ecoroof projects in the city. Industrial, residential, commercial and mixed-use projects are eligible. Application materials and more information are available on our website. To receive an application form in the mail, send us an email or call 503-823-7914. Please note: funding is limited and be awarded to applications until they're gone. We've had several in the last month, so if you're planning to submit for a project, the earlier the better!

The next Ecoroof Symposium will take place on Thursday, May 2nd. Please save the date - more details to come soon. Also, materials from the 2012 Ecoroof Symposium have been posted on our website, including links to videos and slides of each presentation. You can also find all of the videos on our YouTube page.

Gunderson Ecoroof in Local Band's Music Video

Green roofs are exciting just by themselves, but when you put an energetic rock band on a green roof, you can expect great things. That's exactly what happened when the Portland Oregon-based band Rags and Ribbons teamed up with Perceptions NW, Gunderson LLC's Dave Harvey, and Amy Chomowicz to create a music video featuring a green roof. The video's compelling story incorporates Gunderson's green roof to send a message about the positive impact green roofs have on the environment. According to the Portland Mercury, "this video should do for ecoroofs what 'Thriller' did for dancing zombies." Given that description, it's gotta be special. Check out the video here:
