Energy Trust Offers Efficiency Open Houses

The Energy Trust launched a two-week tour on Tuesday to talk with Oregonians about plans for saving electricity, promoting green power and helping people lower their energy costs.

Portland, Oregon – September 4, 2002 [] Executive director Margie Harris and key staff will make 10 stops in nine Oregon cities from through September 14 to hear comments on their newly published draft five-year strategic plan and two-year action plan. “Since opening our doors in March, our board and staff have worked with groups and individuals all over the state who want to change how Oregonians use energy,” said Margie Harris, executive director of the Energy Trust. “We’ve held public listening sessions and meetings with stakeholders to make sure that we anticipate and define the Energy Trust in a way that reflects Oregonians’ ideas and needs.” In each location, the Energy Trust will host a two-hour informal open house. Displays will explain the plans, staffed by program directors who will answer questions and discuss ideas. A formal comment period will follow each open house. The Energy Trust invests approximately US$50 million a year to help Oregonians use energy more efficiently and to enjoy the benefits of renewable power.
