Where We Work
Renewable Northwest is the only advocacy organization with a committed and long-term focus on the renewable energy policies and markets of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. The reputation that we have built over 20 years of advocacy has resulted in deep relationships within state agencies and legislators that translate into realistic and effective policy recommendations. While we live and breathe the Northwest’s electricity scene, we are acutely aware of the need for our regional marketplaces to be integrated with an efficient and connected west-wide electricity market. For this reason, we also engage extensively on market-development advocacy outside of our home states.
How We Work
Renewable Northwest membership consists of energy industry leaders as well as environmental, equity and consumer advocacy organizations that do not always share the same values or priorities. The unique strength we possess is informed by these diverse perspectives and members’ commitment to build relationships and trust that translate into policy and marketplace solutions which reflect the urgency of our need to address climate change, keeping energy rates affordable, and business realities of building, integrating, and operating renewable energy projects. Through collaboration among Renewable Northwest members we are able to create break-through solutions backed by diverse and powerful coalitions.
