The foundation for going to 100% Clean is moving to a 100% fossil-free electricity grid. Washington and Oregon are blessed with abundant clean, renewable energy resources. This offers us the opportunity to become global leaders in developing the clean energy-based economy of the future, with cleaner air and water, improved health, and new opportunities to attract strong jobs and industry.

Clean in Your Community

Washington electric vehicle owners benefit from the cheap and clean energy that costs an average of 8 cents per KW hour. That is by far the cheapest in the nation.

In the PNW, solar accounts for over 8,000 jobs and 317 employers. (seia.org)

Energy efficiency jobs are the #1 source of employment in the clean energy economy.

Wind power is a huge part of getting the electricity grid to 100% clean in the PNW.

In 2016, wind power accounted for 12.1% of the electricity generated in Oregon and 7.1% generated in Washington.

"You are looking at a little over 44,000 solar panels over 87 acres. We believe this is the future of good business and clean energy in the Pacific Northwest," said Larry Henry, Construction Manager for Saturn Power, at the Tumbleweed Solar Farm just outside Bend.

King County Metro released 11 all-electric buses to its fleet. The buses have zero emissions and charge in just 10 minutes.

Our Mission

The Pacific Northwest is our home. We care about this place and do our part to protect it for future generations. We only use what we need, we build things to last, and we work together to protect our environment from all forms of pollution.

That’s why we’re a leader in clean, renewable energy—and energy efficiency. Our region’s commonsense approach and entrepreneurial spirit means we have some of the lowest-carbon and most affordable power in the nation.

100% Clean for PNW is about making a rapid, just, and complete transition to a renewable, low-carbon economy. It’s about leaving our home better than we found it.

WHAT DOES 100% CLEAN look like?

Fossil-free power grid

The foundation of 100% Clean is a fossil-free electricity grid. That means every time you use energy, it will be coming from local, renewable sources.

Electrified infrastructure

At the same time, we need to electrify just about everything we can—shifting transportation and building systems towards clean and efficient energy.

Homegrown
jobs

By building and supporting a clean and efficient energy grid and infrastructure, we’ll create well-paying and permanent jobs in the PNW.

We Could be First

The PNW can be the first states in the continental U.S. to pledge to go 100% Clean by 2050. We’re already halfway there. We can be a leader in sustainability while strengthening our economy.
