COMMUNITY SOLAR PROJECT
Rooftop solar using photovoltaic cells is a great way to address climate change by moving off fossil fuel sources of electricity. However not everyone in Lake Oswego has good solar access. The answer then is to consider Community Solar.
Electric Landscaping Project
Communities all over the United States are targeting gas powered landscaping equipment in response to the significant noise and the air pollution they produce.
One of LOSN’s projects is working with others to switch from gas powered landscaping equipment to electric landscaping equipment.
Electrify LO Project
The goal of Electrify LO is to provide information, to motivate and to reduce barriers to home and vehicle electrification.
More specifically, we advocate for clean energy to power your lifestyle including electric vehicles, efficient electric home appliances, electric water and space heating, and rooftop solar with battery storage.

Multifamily EV Charging Project
Most EV’s currently are recharged overnight in a homeowner’s garage. However, people who live in apartments and condominiums typically lack access to convenient charging.
Wastewater Treatment Plant Project
Lake Oswego’s wastewater is currently treated at Portland’s Tryon Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (TCWTP) located in the Foothills area. The plant needs to be significantly upgraded or replaced to meet current and anticipated water quality discharge standards.
