Transition to Clean Energy


Oregon PSR's Healthy Climate Program advocates for a just transition to a clean energy economy. Antiquated fossil fuels and dangerous, expensive nuclear power pose both immediate and long-term negative impacts to human health and our climate. We work with our community partners to support and promote clean, renewable energy that is protective of human health.

We were proud to partner with climate justice allies, conservation groups, and the City of Portland and Multnomah County in developing and passing landmark resolutions committing the City and County to 100% clean, renewable energy by the year 2050. These resolutions are among the country's most progressive and bold action plans with attention to communities on the front lines of climate chaos (communities of color, low income communities, and more). For more information, take a look at the finished versions:
