BBPDX event in support of the Portland Clean Energy Initiative

  • Business for a Better Portland 911 Northeast Davis Street Portland, OR, 97232 United States (map)

The Portland Clean Energy Initiative (Measure 26-201) which will be on the ballot this November was endorsed by BBPDX after a thorough member workgroup policy. You can read the endorsement here

Join BBPDX members OneEnergy Renewables (Bill Eddie and Ann Siqveland), Kristen Connor, and Ashley Henry from the BBPDX team for drinks and light snacks as we gather together to say YES to more affordable clean energy projects.

YES to job training in the renewable energy field.

YES to lowering utility bills.

YES to billionaire retail corporations paying their fair share.

YES to more innovative projects that reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

YES to solutions coming straight from our communities.

This measure is groundbreaking not only for being the first community of color-led ballot measure in Portland history but also for being one of the nation’s first initiatives that will make significant and tangible progress addressing both climate change and persistent inequalities.

At a time when we’re experiencing divisiveness and insufficient state and federal action, the nation and world need compelling examples of communities that are addressing these issues head-on through bold and creative measures.
