Accountability Today Leads to a Better Tomorrow
Energy Trust operates under a grant agreement with the Oregon Public Utility Commission (OPUC). The OPUC oversees our organization by setting annual performance measures for energy savings, renewable resource development, financial integrity, program delivery efficiency, customer satisfaction and benefit and cost ratios. Every year, we outline energy goals in our board-approved budget and are accountable to the OPUC for meeting those targets.
Delivering the Right Programs at the Right Time
The services and incentives we offer are tailored to groups that represent a broad spectrum of customers in Oregon and Southwest Washington, including homeowners, developers, business owners, ranchers and manufacturers.
To effectively meet the unique needs of those we serve, we work with experts—including program management and program delivery contractors and trade allies—to deliver many of our programs and install upgrades. We also employ field and outreach staff and collaborate with local partners so you have peace of mind knowing that the people working with you are knowledgeable, trusted members of the community.
A Focus on Earning Trust
Our mission is to bring affordable clean energy—and all the benefits that come with it—to everyone. As an independent nonprofit, our responsibility is to ensure every dollar we spend makes a meaningful impact on customers and communities. That’s why we’ve built accountability into everything we do.
We continuously evaluate our programs, leveraging data and customer feedback from our 20+ years of experience, to refine our offerings and better meet the needs of the communities we serve. Our programs regularly undergo evaluation by third-party experts. And we track and report every dollar invested and every kilowatt hour and therm saved in quarterly and annual reports.
We also welcome input from those we serve. Our board meetings are open to the public so those interested can hear discussions on our strategy, budgets, action plans and contracts and make comments during the public comment period.
