Clean Energy Works Oregon: Who They Are
Join the Future with Clean Energy Works Oregon. A new nonprofit that helps energize your homes by making energy efficiency upgrades affordable and easy.
Who Is Clean Energy Works Oregon ?
According to the website, “Clean Energy Works Oregon (CEWO) is a non-profit program established to reduce energy waste by encouraging homeowners to take direct action. CEWO is transforming the old into new, restoring our communities and reviving our economy. Our plan is to transform at least 6,000 homes in only three years.”
CEWO’s mission is to transform homes that currently “waste” energy into homes that are both more comfortable and infinitely more energy efficient. More comfortable? Think
about it. How would you like to spend less money, but end up staying cooler in the hot summer and even warmer in the winter. That, my friends, would be amazing. So how do they do it?
“Homeowners have energy efficiency improvements within their reach. The CEWO program offers no-money-down, easy financing and simple qualifications. Plus, it can offset future energy costs, particularly as they rise. This is made possible because of devoted partnerships between public, private and non-profit interests including our utility companies, local lenders, local governments, Energy Trust of Oregon, the Oregon Dept. of Energy and the U.S. Dept. of Energy. CEWO is a model for how we can all work together successfully for a common cause.”
What Is Hammer & Hand, Anyway?

Hammer & Hand states that they are “dedicated to creating an unparalleled product [and] bring expert craftsmanship, building science and project management acumen to every job we undertake” while remaining “passionate about building the best of the best.”
