Marylhurst in Top 5 Greenest Neighborhoods

Marylhurst ranked in Portland's top five "greenest neighborhoods" according to a report by Sustainable Business Oregon.

Excerpt from an article by Andy Giegerich in Sustainable Business Oregon, July 17, 2013.

The Portland Business Journal's upcoming list on the city's "hottest" neighborhoods made us wonder: Where might we find Portland's "greenest" 'hoods?

Kudos to Portland General Electric and Energy Trust of Oregon for delivering sets of useful numbers — PGE sent us its 10 leading ZIP codes in terms of renewable energy purchases, by percentages, while Energy Trust provided a list of its residential solar projects by ZIP code — in just one day.
