Northwest Community Energy (USA)

This website is a project of Northwest Sustainable Energy for Economic Development. Northwest SEED works to establish a clean, diverse, and affordable Northwest energy system based on efficient use of renewable resources, with maximum local control and ownership of energy assets.

The Northwest region has abundant sources of clean, renewable energy and many opportunities for conservation and efficiency. This site focuses on Community Energy in the Northwest, meaning development of these clean resources with substantial community ownership and involvement. Project size can vary widely, especially given the range of efficiency and renewable technologies, but historically these projects have been up to 20 megawatts, or roughly $20 million in cost. New financial models that allow many community members to invest modest amounts in large scale projects (over $20 million) are under development, but as yet are not widely available.
