Free Air Conditioners for Low-Income Portlanders!

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Portland City Council has approved a grant to give low-income Portlanders cooling units following the June 2021 heat wave.

The grant will launch the Portland Clean Energy Community Benefits Fund (PCEF) Heat Response Program which plans to give out 15,000 energy efficient heat pumps/AC units over the next five years to locations with the greatest heat-related risk.

As climate change worsens, worst-case models show extreme heat events, like that of June 2021, will increase, according to the Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability.
