Class description 

PGE’s renewable power program is the most successful of its kind in the country—for nine years running. When a customer chooses to purchase renewable power from PGE’s Green Future program, a portion of their purchase funds the Renewable Development Fund (RDF). The RDF offers competitive funding awards to applicants deploying their own clean energy projects within PGE’s service territory. This free class will provide interested non-profits with information on developing the best project application for RDF funding.

This class will help you:

  • Understand how the RDF can be used
  • Differentiate between good and bad applications
  • Create an effective application
  • Navigate funding timeline

Who will benefit?

This class is specifically designed to help non-profit organizations that
own their building to create strong applications to request RDF funding.

  • Non-profit grant writers
  • Facility managers
  • Energy managers
