I wanted to let everyone know about some recent opportunities within the City of Portland Ecoroof Program:
New Round of the Ecoroof Incentive
The next round of ecoroof incentives is now open, and the deadline for applications is December 1, 2011. Nearly all roofs in Portland are eligible to receive up to $5 / per square foot for an ecoroof. This is the seventh round of funding the incentive, and since 2008 the program has funded close to 150 projects across the City. If you have a roof that might be a good candidate, please submit an application or contact us to discuss.
You can also visit our website, where we have amassed technical resources to help you, project reports from past incentives, and our ecoroof blog to keep you updated. Learn more and download an application at www.portlandonline.com/bes/ecoroofincentives.
2011 Ecoroof Seminars
The City of Portland is again offering FREE technical workshops for anyone interested in learning more about ecoroofs in Portland. There will be two separate one-day seminars: one for Professionals on December 6th and one for Property Owners on December 10th. Learn more and register here.
Please forward these opportunities to anyone that might be interested. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me.
