Energize Oregon

In partnership with USDA NRCS, Energy Trust of Oregon, and the Oregon Department of Energy, Northwest SEED facilitated the transition from project concept to implementation by:

  • forming strategic partnerships
  • developing tools to overcome project development hurdles
  • coordinating the financing and installation of systems
  • publishing results so that others can replicate project successes
