Welcome to Planet Clark, a public-private outreach and education partnership in Clark County, Washington. In 2011, Clark County Building Safety and Environmental Services teamed up with Clark PUD and private businesses to provide the residents of SW Washington with useful-actionable information to protect their family’s health, safety and investments!

A primary goal of this public-private partnership was to create more jobs within Clark County’s building community. The Clark County commissioners adopted the National Green Building Standard as a voluntary code to help residential builders obtain a uniform set of green guidelines to help customers seeking more efficient and healthy homes. Learn why green building is better!

We invite you to explore the planet and discover ways to improve the indoor air quality of your home, reduce your energy expenses and protect your investment!

Are you ready to build or renovate a house? Check out the Emerald House of Planet Clark! Through the help of community sponsorships, Clark County built the first NAHB Emerald Certified Green Home in Clark County for a family in need.

To preserve our planet for future generations, the Planet Clark Outreach Program serves families and children throughout Clark County. The Energy Detectives Program in elementary education classrooms teaches our youth about energy conservation.

Tour the Planet Clark Trailer and see live demonstrations in an interactive environment the whole family will enjoy. You and your family can learn together how to improve the quality of your lives, conserve resources and gain new insights into the latest home technologies.

Planet Clark works with local Partners that include Clark Public Utilities and Northwest Natural. Our local, private business partners are Planet Clark approved! They provide valuable contributions to the Planet Clark Outreach and Education Services and their goods and services can make your home safer, healthier, energy efficient and much more.
