MPower delivers water and energy cost savings to affordable housing tenants and building owners, creating local economic opportunities while reducing carbon pollution and resource waste.
What is the MPower Toolkit?
The MPower Toolkit describes the MPower model and draws templates, resources, and lessons learned from MPower Oregon - a demonstration pilot that puts MPower into practice. At times, MPower Oregon differs from the MPower model, according to local situations and necessities. Because of this, each chapter will describe how MPower operates, and how MPower Oregon has implemented the concept. Although details may be different, the core mission remains the same.
The MPower Toolkit is not a resource for legal advice, and program administrators are encouraged to consult with a lawyer before adapting a template for use. Acknowledgements
About MPower Oregon
In 2011, Green For All partnered with the Network of Oregon Affordable Housing, Enterprise Community Partners, the Energy Trust of Oregon, Craft3, and Blue Tree Strategies to launch MPower Oregon, a demonstration project in Portland. MPower Oregon is capitalized at $8.1 million through the Network for Oregon Affordable Housing, Craft3, Energy Trust of Oregon, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the State of Oregon Department of Energy, Clean Energy Works Oregon, and the MacArthur Foundation. MPower Oregon continues to develop and implement the MPower model.
The MPower Toolkit was made possible by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Living Cities, and The Kresge Foundation.
