Renewable Northwest is the region’s leading non-profit focused exclusively on advocating for new, clean, sustainable, renewable resources.
Founded in 1994 as the Renewable Northwest Project, we have grown to become one of the nation’s premier renewable energy advocacy organizations. Our unique model of combining the talents of diverse, renewable energy business and non-profit members to advocate for the expansion of environmentally responsible renewable energy resources has resulted in much success. Together, we have supported state and regional policies that have brought the region over 8,000 MWs of new solar, wind and geothermal projects—enough to serve 2,000,000 customers. The resulting clean energy investment, job creation, local economic development, and clean air benefits are helping support our treasured quality of life.
The NW Energy Coalition is an alliance of about 100 environmental, civic, and human service organizations, progressive utilities, and businesses in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and British Columbia.
We promote development of renewable energy and energy conservation, consumer protection, low-income energy assistance, and fish and wildlife restoration on the Columbia and Snake rivers. The NW Energy Coalition and its members advocate a clean and affordable energy future for the region based on:
- Meeting all new energy demand with energy efficiency and new renewable resources.
- Full and fair accounting for the environmental effects of energy decisions.
- Protecting and restoring the fish and wildlife of the Columbia River Basin.
- Consumer and low-income protection.
- Informed public involvement in building a clean and affordable energy future.
