Solarize Case Study

Community-Based Collective Purchasing in West Linn, Lake Oswego, and Clackamas County, Oregon

ICMA Recommended

In March 2012, the cities of West Linn and Lake Oswego, Oregon launched Solarize West Linn-Lake Oswego, a community-led solar initiative, supported by both cities, Clackamas County, and a grant from the city of Portland’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability. Clackamas County also supported a Solarize campaign along with the county’s Oregon State University extension service – Growing Solar Clackamas County.  

This is the fourth in a series of case studies, identified through ICMA’s Solar Survey of Local Governments.  For a summary of survey results, click here.   The other case studies in this series are:
