Leadership

We are led by a board of directors made up of non-stakeholder volunteers drawn from communities across Oregon and from a variety of industries. The board sets our strategic direction, policies and budget and offers independent perspectives. Two stakeholder advisory councils provide insight and ideas for board consideration.

Our staff brings expertise and creativity to manage planning, program oversight, reporting, customer service, training, stakeholder engagement, quality control and market feedback. Led by an eight-member Management Team, Energy Trust values collaboration to achieve lasting clean energy results for our customers.

The board carries out its oversight role through several committees.
