Energy Trust’s 2020-2024 Strategic Plan builds on our 18-year history successfully serving Oregon residents and businesses with clean energy solutions. It also accounts for a variety of changes and uncertainties we foresee emerging. These changes require Energy Trust to innovate and build on how we accomplish our goals and deliver benefits to all customers of Portland General Electric, 太平洋大国, 西北自然, Cascade Natural Gas and Avista.
Five focus areas and key strategies will guide our future program and outreach efforts. These focus areas align to our core purpose, which is to help customers and communities reduce costs and realize additional benefits by saving energy and using renewable resources.
