Energy Trust of Oregon is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to energy efficiency and renewable energy development.
Primarily funded by ratepayers in Oregon utilities with an organizational budget of $206.5 million in 2021, we serve 1.6 million Oregon customers of Portland General Electric, Pacific Power, NW Natural, Cascade Natural Gas and Avista. These customers are renters, homeowners, commercial business owners, property managers, schools, agricultural operations, small to large industrial facilities, and local governments and community organizations. Since 2002, customers have saved $3.4 billion on energy bills from efficiency retrofits, high-performance new construction and renewable energy systems installed at 718,000 locations and purchased through retail and distributors.
These dollars recirculate in Oregon’s economy, driving broader economic benefits for all.
Energy Trust is overseen by the Oregon Public Utility Commission (OPUC) and is accountable for meeting annual minimum performance measures set by the commission. A non-stakeholder, volunteer board of directors sets the strategic direction, policies and annual budgets, and offers independent perspectives.
We are proud to be recognized year-over-year as one of Oregon Business’ Best Nonprofits to Work for in Oregon and Best Green Workplaces in Oregon, among our other awards.
We’re looking for a visionary, innovative, strategic and collaborative leader to lead and advance Energy Trust’s energy efficiency and renewable energy programs into the dynamic energy future. The Director of Energy Programs is an executive level position at Energy Trust, managing the organization’s program teams in the direction, design and implementation of all of the organization’s energy efficiency and renewable energy programs.
