The city of Portland, OR, has received $1 million from the Climate Trust to improve the energy efficiency of apartments and commercial buildings. The Climate Trust is a nonprofit organization formed in response to Oregon legislation that requires new power plants to counter their global warming impact by providing funds to stimulate projects that avoid, displace, or sequester CO2 emissions.

Over the next five years, the Portland Office of Sustainable Development, Energy, and Green Building Divisions, will use the Climate Trust funding to work with the owners of over 12,000 apartment units and about 40 commercial buildings statewide to enhance energy efficiency.
