Multnomah County not only works to protect the most vulnerable in our community, but is also committed to a healthy planet. Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury has pledged that by 2050, Multnomah County will transition to 100% renewable energy, an action that aims to fulfill a pledge to our children and community’s future by providing clean air, a stable climate, and more equitable economic opportunities.
The Morrison Bridge is illuminated by 32 ultra bright LEDs (light emitting diodes) that will last about 25 years (running on average 8 hours per day) and use ⅛ the energy of traditional floodlights. The little electricity that is used to power the Bridge’s LED lights comes from clean renewable energy resources.
Multnomah County believes local action can make a difference on climate change.
