Portland Clean Energy Fund, American Climate Leadership Awards Finalist
Portland Clean Energy Fund was among 10 American Climate Leadership Award finalists recognized at the American Climate Leadership Awards Virtual Ceremony on March 25.
Portland Clean Energy Fund is the first climate initiative in Oregon created and led by low-income people and people of color (frontline communities). Supported by a broad, diverse coalition, PCEF generates annual funding via a 1% surcharge on billion-dollar corporations. PCEF grants support renewable energy, energy efficiency and green infrastructure projects, alongside job and contractor training, and emphasize benefiting frontline communities.
Join us at the rescheduled American Climate Leadership Summit 2020 (ACLS 2020) August 26-27 in Washington, DC, when we will honor Portland Clean Energy Fund and the other ACLA finalists in person. For more information about the ACLA finalists and ACLS 2020 go to acls2020.org and Register Today.
