Reducing energy consumption saves money and helps protect the environment.  Installing energy efficient equipment, adjusting settings, and making changes to routine practices will reduce spending on utilities. Even if you don't own your building there are still plenty of opportunities to make improvements.

Energy assessment

The energy assessment will help you find problem spots and eliminate costly consumption issues. Completing this assessment will require you to understand your energy consumption on a yearly basis as well as join the Clark Public Utilities Green Lights Program.

The Clark Public Utilities Green Lights Program funds renewable energy projects throughout the Pacific Northwest. To sign up for the Green Lights Program contact Key Accounts Manager Michelle Missfeldt with the following information:

1.  Your utility account number.

2.  Your participation level in “blocks” or dollars per month.

3.  The month you would like to start the Green Lights Program.

4.  A copy of your company logo.

Program participation is required, but your Green Lights participation level in “blocks” or dollars is up to you and your business.
