A Clean Energy Future for Bend—Two Paths to 100% Renewable

January 29 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Bend is developing a community climate action plan to reduce local greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. That means taking a hard look at new sources of energy, since the majority of the energy we use today is generated by burning fossil fuels.

Join us on January 29th for an engaging and thought-provoking discussion about two options that our community could use to rapidly transition to a low-carbon, 100% renewable energy future.

RSVP here—space is limited!

Community Choice Aggregation is a tool available in California and several other states that allows a whole community to choose to buy their energy directly from renewable sources and have their utility deliver it. Recently, Pacific Power has developed its own pathway for communities it serves to purchase renewable electricity directly from the utility. We’ll learn about both models, the pros and the cons and the uncertainties for a community like Bend, and give you a chance to ask your questions.

Speakers:

  • Shawn Marshall, Executive Director, LEAN Energy US
  • Matthew Chancellor, Regional Business Manager, Pacific Power

Agenda:

  • Networking: 5:00 to 5:30 pm
  • Presentation + Q&A: 5:30 to 6:30
  • Networking and mingling with speakers: 6:30 to 7:00

A big thanks to our sponsor, Worthy Brewing.
