NWNC Clean Energy Program

    The Northwest Native Chamber (NWNC) has developed a program that provides energy efficient upgrades for Native homeowners. NWNC seeks to address climate change and its disproportionate impact on communities living on the frontlines of climate change, including communities of color and people with low incomes.

Native Contractors helping Native Homeowners

NWNC’s Clean Energy Contractor Development Program is a culturally-specific program seeking to connect Native homeowners and Native-owned businesses who can assist in preparing their homes for a changing climate.
The CECDP:
  • Enables clean-energy home upgrades and repairs for Native homeowners at no cost
  • Provides clean-energy workforce opportunities to Native contractors and construction firms
  • Supports Native economic revitalization
  • Recirculates public dollars for clean energy directly into Native economies
