Rob Morton

Founder Emeritus, Board Member

In 2016, Cascade Energy set a 10-year goal to help our clients save a cumulative 900 average Megawatts by 2025 (roughly equivalent to $6 billion in cumulative energy cost savings at $0.08 per kWh). Rob Morton has broad responsibility for Cascade’s business strategies to make those savings possible. To succeed at this scale, Cascade will require a greater geographic reach, new customers, effective programs, new technology, and an ever-growing and ever-learning team.

Rob started out as project engineer and evolved toward a program designer. He has been instrumental in the conception of multiple demand-side management program offerings, including Bonneville Power Administration’s Energy Smart Industrial Program and Energy Trust of Oregon’s Streamlined Industrial approach. As a founding owner of Cascade, Mr. Morton has been focused on industrial energy efficiency since 1991.
