Oregonians' New Year's Wish: Clean Energy

December 29, 2006

Salem, OR - As the legislature gears up to open its session in two weeks, one of the major issues it will tackle is clean energy. Ivan Maluski with the Sierra Club in Oregon says clean energy would put the state on track with Washington and California while bringing environmental and economic benefits.

"It could help us end dependence on both foreign and domestic sources of oil while helping Oregon farmers and alternative energy industries like solar and wind facilities."

Maluski adds that Oregonians consume large amounts of energy and it doesn't make sense to use expensive and environmentally harmful sources when clean energy can be produced closer to home.

"Ultimately, it will really pay off for Oregonians both in terms of their pocketbooks, and in terms of our cleaner environment, by switching to more renewable forms of clean energy."

Governor Kulongoski and the state Senate have already proposed many clean energy measures, including tax credits for home energy efficiency and a statewide commitment toward expanding and developing clean energy production.
