About the Renewable Northwest Board & Our Members

Renewable Northwest Board Officers and Directors are the ultimate decision-making authority for Renewable Northwest. The Board is composed of individuals from environmental and consumer nonprofit organizations, as well as for-profit companies working in the renewable energy sector. The organization's bylaws require that the majority of the Directors be affiliated with nonprofit advocacy organizations to ensure the organization maintains a focus on our environmental mission.

The list of our general member organizations shows the breadth and depth of the entire coalition. While the voting power resides with the Board, the diversity of our entire coalition is what gives Renewable Northwest its strength of vision. Links to each member website, and name of their main representative to Renewable Northwest, is also provided here.
