Community Power Works' Success Opens Doors to its Future
Community Power Works is preparing for the next phase of the program with support from the City of Seattle's Office of Sustainability and Environment (OSE) and Clean Energy Works, the Portland, Oregon-based nonprofit organization that received seed funding from the Better Buildings Neighborhood Program and previously operated as Clean Energy Works Oregon. The partners will help Community Power Works develop a business plan and explore funding opportunities.
"From the beginning, we hoped the pilot phase of Community Power Works would prove that Seattle is ready for a citywide energy efficiency program," said Jill Simmons, director of OSE. "Seattleites responded with characteristic passion, helping the program exceed most of its ambitious goals. We look forward to engaging Clean Energy Works as the program grows and thrives over the coming years."
As a Better Buildings Neighborhood Program partner, Community Power Works helped more than 2,500 homeowners upgrade their homes. The program will build off this initial momentum as it enters its next phase. Read more about Community Power Works' future.
