Energy Trust of Oregon Requesting Public Comment


The Energy Trust of Oregon is working on their 2015-2019 strategic plan and they are asking for public comment.

Please let them know that transportation is an important part of a household's energy use and they can and should encourage the use of plug-in vehicles.

The Energy Trust encourages energy efficiency. So they could, for example, have an incentive toward the purchase of home charging stations.

Oregon has a goal to have 90% of all vehicle miles traveled in the state to be electrically fueled by 2050. The Energy Trust of Oregon can help to make this happen.
