Making Energy Work for Rural Oregon: Talent

Click here to Register

This workshop is part of a series of six energy workshops taking place across Oregon that will help rural communities identify energy savings and energy generation opportunities, and invest in local energy programs and projects. All of the workshops are co-hosted by Sustainable Northwest, Lake County Resources Initiative, and Wallowa Resources.
The Talent workshop is being developed in collaboration with Together for TalentRogue ClimateJackson Soil and Water Conservation DistrictRogue Valley Council of Governments, and the mayor of Talent. These leaders are pursuing investment in clean energy to help create a healthier environment for their community, grow the tax base, and save and keep money in their community. 
Who attends the workshops?
Talent residents, business leaders, teachers, industry professionals, high energy users from the residential, industrial, and agricultural sectors, landlords, farmers, city planners, municipal leaders, and anyone interested in helping Talent pursue a clean energy future.
Workshop participants will learn what kind of energy planning has already taken place, and learn from other communities that have committed to a clean energy future how much money they are saving and what type of jobs they have created. In addition, speakers will present on residential energy savings and generation opportunities, commercial opportunities for the main street, and how Talent could pursue a community driven and owned solar installation.
