Power Hour: Homegrown Renewables Series – Community-wide 100% Renewable Energy: Can we get there?
June 29 @ 5:15 pm - 7:00 pm
UPDATE: This event is now ALL virtual with no in-person event.
The City of Bend’s Community Climate Action Plan (CCAP) calls for Bend to transition to 100% renewable energy by 2025. In the OR 2021 legislative session, HB 2021, also known as the 100% Clean For All bill, passed which will allow communities to buy renewable energy from Pacific Power or PGE through a special rate structure and a long-term contract. Come learn what this means for meeting our renewable energy goals and how you can help support this work.
At this event, we will dig into what still needs to be done to finalize this program and how communities can step up to help shape this program to ensure that it meets their needs, what kind of support there is to do just that, and the kinds of local projects that green tariff programs could support.
