The Initivative Of Portland
The Portland Clean Energy Initiative means $30 million in new annual revenue for clean energy and clean energy jobs in Portland. Nonprofit organizations, alone or in partnership with for-profit companies, schools and/or other government agencies, can apply for grants from this revenue to weatherize homes, install solar and other renewable energy projects, provide job and contractor training, expand local food production and build green infrastructure in Portland.
Who we are
Our initiative is Oregon’s first ever community of color-led environmental ballot measure, with core leadership from the African-American, Native American, Latinx and Asian-Pacific Islander communities. The culmination of years of capacity building partnerships between organizations of color and the philanthropic community, PCEI signals the arrival of a new inclusive climate movement that can win elections in Portland, in Oregon and nationwide.
Portland Clean Energy Initiative has a fundamental commitment to Portlanders who are most impacted by climate change but have been excluded from the emerging low-carbon economy: low-income people and people of color. At least 50% of grant-funded energy efficiency/renewable energy projects “should specifically benefit low-income residents and communities of color;” and at least 20% of all grants “shall be awarded to nonprofit organizations with a mission and track record of programs that benefit economically disadvantaged community members.
Portland Clean Energy Initiative is a not-for-profit organization with love for the environment and the people. We run various green programs to promote energy conservation for a better today and green tomorrow.
Our team is a group of like-minded individuals working with volunteers, donors, and everyone who loves to keep the environment clean and green. We work towards a safe world that’s free from harmful fossil fuel pollutants that kill marine, wild, air, and land animals, including humans.
We run both volunteer and sponsored programs aimed at fighting for a green and clean world. Our green energy initiative programs to consider and join

Measure 26-201 has passed and marks the first environmental initiative created and led by communities of color in Oregon history.
