          • Carbon offsets: After you maximize ways to reduce your energy and reduce carbon emissions through efficiency and conservation, you can neutralize your remaining carbon footprint with carbon offsets added right to your EWEB bill. 
          • Carbon forestry lab: Support local carbon forestry projects aimed at expanding our understanding of natural climate solutions while enhancing the McKenzie Watershed.

            • Electric Mobility programs: Our Move Green programs are designed to make electric mobility accessible to everyone in our community through grants, EV carsharing, and charging station and e-bike rebates. 
            • Emergency Preparedness:  Resources and programs such as Pledge to Prepare and back-up generator loans can help your family  stay safe in the event of an emergency.  
            • Educational Programs: We dedicate a portion of rates to local school districts to support energy and water resource education.   
            • Watershed protection: Through many long-term partnerships, we offer initiatives that reward landowners in the McKenzie Watershed for protecting their lands along the river and restoring riparian forests. Their good stewardship helps EWEB protect the source of our drinking water, avoiding future water treatment costs.  

             We work hard to deliver safe and reliable electricity and water, while also providing the resources and programs to our customer owners that help to improve their lives and strengthen our community.
