350Deschutes Climate Advocacy and Education
Volunteer for Climate Advocacy and Activism

Are you looking for a chance to make a difference in your community? A way to have a real impact on climate issues that directly affect you, your business, your friends and neighbors and future generations? Then join our CPACE committee that is working to persuade our local government to pass an ordinance that will enable CPACE financing to be used for buildings in our community.

Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (CPACE) financing is a special financing tool that helps pay for clean energy and energy efficiency upgrades to commercial buildings. We are trying to get the city council of Bend to pass an ordinance enabling this tool for Bend (it's already enabled for the state of Oregon). Our focus with this tool is to encourage its use for low-income housing, allowing building owners to upgrade their buildings and increase equity while lowering the energy costs for tenants.

The committee will meet approximately once per month for about an hour. Tasks for individuals to accomplish to further the cause will be designated during meetings.

This opportunity offers the chance for committee members to learn or hone skills such as communication with government officials, research, graphic design, giving virtual, public presentations, and more! We hope you'll join us and help our community work towards a more sustainable future!
