Sustainable Idaho: The Portneuf Resource Council

Bill Mead

On this episode of Sustainable Idaho, we hear from the organization that sponsors our show, the Portneuf Resource Council. I interviewed Mike Engle, the Chair of the PRC. The Portneuf Resource Council is part of a network of grassroots environmental organizations including the Idaho Organization of Resource Council, and the Western Organization of Resource Councils.

In 2019, the PRC ran the successful Solarize Pocatello program, helping 80 households install residential solar power. In addition to clean energy, the organization works on clean water projects and supports this show.
