350 PDX says
The City of Portland and Multnomah County are poised to pass a new policy setting a goal to meet 100% of our community wide energy needs with renewable energy by 2050 and 100% of our electricity needs with renewable energy by 2035.

Why does this matter? In order to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, we need rapid reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and to transition off of fossil fuels! Transitioning our energy system to clean & renewable energy is an important way to both reduce our impact on the climate and create a sustainable local economy.

The Mayor and Commissioner Chloe Eudaly are championing the policy, but we need a huge turnout to ensure our Mayor and Commissioners pass the policy in its strongest form!
