Oregon’s Clean Electricity and Coal Transition bill passed the legislature this week. This new legislation did the following:DSCN0105

  • Made Oregon the first state to transition away from coal.
  • Doubled the amount of energy from renewable resources (wind and solar) – 50% by 2040.
  • Committed to dramatically increasing the number of electric vehicle charging stations around the state.
  • Expanded rooftop solar programs including 10% of new participation being provided to low-income Oregonians.

Shorepower will continue to do its part to bring electrification to the masses – now more than ever, those electrons in Oregon will come from clean energy sources.
