The Energy Action Team

Join the Energy Action Team as we plan for and get to work

  • on energy efficiency outreach to Corvallis neighborhoods,
  • on partnering with local energy efficiency advocacy organizations,
  • on exploring ways to bring more renewable energy to Corvallis, including community solar,
  • on facilitating Corvallis’s participation in the Georgetown University Energy Prize competition,
  • on striving to bring more energy grant dollars to Corvallis,
  • on keeping more Corvallis dollars in Corvallis (energy efficiency, investment in local jobs, and investment in locally generated renewable energy), and
  • on having FUN (!) while we do all this….

The Energy Action Team has developed some ambitious goals and actions outlined in the Energy section of the Sustainability Coalition’s Action Plan: Community Sustainability: A Framework for Action. See pages 15-17 for Energy vision and goals, as well as proposed strategies and actions.

Energy: Vision

The vision of the energy action team is that by 2025, Corvallis has achieved energy security and net zero greenhouse gas emissions.

Energy: Goals

Goal 1: By 2025, Corvallis will reduce per capita consumption of energy in the built environment by greater than 50% using energy efficiency and conservation.

Goal 2: By 2025, all energy utilized in Corvallis will be 100% renewable.

Goal 3: By 2030, Corvallis will eliminate net greenhouse gas emissions from energy use.

Energy: Current Projects

Georgetown University Energy Prize:   We are currently focusing our efforts on organizing and facilitating Corvallis’s entry into the Georgetown University Energy Prize competition. In 2014, this will result in a detailed plan to significantly reduce Corvallis energy usage in the residential and municipal sectors.  As part of this effort, we are investigating methods for creating an “energy profile” of Corvallis, which will be used to help identify the best energy reduction opportunities.
