Individual Membership

By joining the NW Energy Coalition as an individual member, you are supporting a clean, affordable, and equitable energy future.

The NW Energy Coalition advances clean, equitable, and affordable energy policies by leveraging our analytic expertise and convening a broad alliance of people and organizations. The Coalition’s diverse and active membership makes it one of the Northwest’s most influential public-interest voices on energy policy.
